How did the attackers get in? What did they do with the data they compromised? What should I be concerned with in my own business or my systems? This course is the second course in the Practical Computer Security. It will discuss types of threats and attack vectors commonly seen in today’s environment. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but threats are all over the place! This course isn’t designed to insight fear that there is no hope for keeping systems and business secure, but rather educate you on how attacks are carried out so that you have a better sense of what to look out for in your business or with your systems.

This course is for everyone who wants to understand how computer attacks are carried out and what to watch out for if you have information that you need to protect. This course is for those individuals that are looking to be able to discuss computer security with their colleagues and superiors and offer suggestions on what to look out for. The project at the end of the course will also allow you to investigate data breaches and be able to determine where attacks came from and how they were carried out. This course will help you identify and classify attack vectors and how to protect yourself, your business, and your systems from attacks.
