Full course description
In this course, certificate candidates will learn about the major cybersecurity threat areas, their history and current trends. This knowledge is the basis for developing and effective Risk Assessment. The course is designed to provide the foundational core understanding of cybersecurity terms, concepts and principles essential to facilitate conceptual learning across the curriculum. Since Access Control through the control of access to information/data is the fundamental basis for cybersecurity, then the study of cryptography and encryption makes sense as it is the basis for ensuring the security of information both in transit and at rest.
