Safe Computing in the Unsafe Age of Hackers & Data Breaches: Computer Security for the Home Use

Reports of cyberattacks against companies and the government are becoming the norm, but what many don't realize is that the threat against individuals is increasing at a much faster pace. When determining the root cause of these incidents, a majority are attributed to the user performing unsafe computing practices. This class, taught by an industry security expert, focuses on tools and techniques that the average home user can use to protect themselves from such attacks, both at home and at work. The class goes in-depth on the easier methods available to common computer users, and gives briefer discussion on advanced techniques for further exploration by those interested in full-on "lockdown" security. Topics include current threats, passwords, home networks, mobile computing, email, general web surfing, and many other useful items for protection.Chris Murphy is a certified information systems security professional (CISSP) who works in the information assurance industry for various corporate and private clients.
