Cybersecurity is important because attackers are consistency learning new “tricks” and techniques to compromise our accounts and steal our identities. Yet individuals usually are slow to catch up, which keeps increasing the gap between the capabilities of attackers and the capabilities of individuals to stay safe. We’d like to help close the gap and make you aware of the dangers that are lurking online, how to recognize them, and how to protect yourself and your loved ones.
We don’t expect any previous knowledge about cybersecurity and as far as “tech” goes, basic familiarity with the internet and computers is a requirement. The rest, you’ll learn from us in a non-judgemental approach. We love to share our knowledge and as long as you bring a passion to learn, we’re sure that you’ll enjoy the course. Feel free to bring your questions to class, and we’ll be happy to answer them.
