Free Online Cyber Security Courses
There used to be two certainties in life - death and taxes. Now we can add a third - cyber attacks. With everything from our laptops and phones to the international industry reliant on secure networks, cyber security has become an area of global importance. Attacks may be motivated by criminal greed or malice, a foreign power’s hostility, or even simple mischief, but many can wreak havoc and cost billions. The weapons of choice in these binary battles include malware and phishing attacks, ransomware and distributed denial-of-service (DdoS) and more.
Alison has curated a suite of courses that offer free cyber security training across a broad range of areas. You may be an individual who wants to become a clued-in digital citizen and protect your personal data, or perhaps you’re in e-commerce and need to feel confident of the cyber security basics? You may want to enter this field of IT and need to train in network security and identifying and dealing with risks, or you may already be a systems administrator working in cloud infrastructure services, aiming for further cyber security certifications.
In this Hub, you will find entry level cyber security courses right up to Advanced Diplomas. Subjects cover everything from ethical hacking, where a professional has permission to hack a corporate network in order to identify weaknesses, to specific exam-focused training such as the CompTIA Security+ courses for professionals at the frontier of protecting business continuity. New courses are being added regularly, so there’s every chance that the specific discipline you need to advance your career is either here, or in production. And with the choice of weapon evolving all the time there is always more to learn.
