As a primer for subsequent courses, it is recommended that those less familiar with security basics begin here.
Learn the foundational skills needed to build a successful cyber security career. In this course, Neil Daswani will show you how to achieve basic security objectives (such as authentication, authorization, access control, confidentiality, data integrity and non-repudiation) by using secure systems and design principles. You’ll learn about major security breaches that have occurred over the years (think Target, JPMorganChase, Yahoo, and Equifax) and how to build countermeasures to defend against such attacks.
You’ll hear from experts like Professor Dan Boneh, one of the world’s leading minds on applied cryptography, Vint Cerf, co-creator of the internet, and industry security leaders from Google, LinkedIn, and LifeLock.
This course also features an interactive, virtual lab. In a controlled environment, you’ll be given an opportunity to identify flaws and manipulate systems. By understanding how these hacks are executed, you’ll be better equipped to defend against them.
