A Practical Guide to Cyber Security
What if we told you security breaches don't happen because of hackers?
Let's start this off with an example that has become a commonplace scenario just about everywhere. You buy a good system. You install and update your Windows 10 operating system. You set up the network just as your provider tells you to, and use the default, "Microsoft-recommended settings" for firewall. Even if you have a Mac, at this point, you're feeling accomplished. Set. Safe.
To top things off, you buy security software. That must plug any loopholes.
After 5 months, you experience a data breach. Why?
It’s not because hackers got together and innovated a way to breach your system. They work on a model that is “bulk/event-based,” which means, they are like alligators—waiting in the water for the prey to make a mistake they can take advantage of.
This scenario happened because, in your DIY approach, you had left out security gaps that acted as windows for lurking threats to enter your parameter.
Comprehensive security is a practice that requires cyber resilience and knowledge. These two things are what most people and businesses are lacking right now, and this is what this course will help you with.
This course will help you set up security protocols that are holistic and learn about the most overlooked aspects of security that cost you data, time, hardware, and money.
This course will cover all the major aspects of security everyone should know, diving into:
Windows security and updates
Google and browser security
Password security and access management
It’s time to get holistic about your approach to security!
