Course Description

Cybersecurity is defined as the steps and processes taken to protect networks, devices, programs, and data from unauthorized access that can result in theft or damage.  Small and large companies alike put cybersecurity measures into place to protect their network, as well as to restrict employees from visiting websites that may compromise sensitive data.   It's just as important as any measures a company takes to secure their trade secrets or physical assets from being compromised. 

In this course, you will receive beginner training in the field of cybersecurity.  This training is ideal for those new to the field, but interested in pursuing a career.  This course covers the many areas of cybersecurity that you'll need to gain employment, including network security, cloud security, system security, network infrastructure, protocols, and encryption.
