Introduction to Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity threats are becoming more common in our everyday lives, especially in industrial networks. Ensuring your device and network is secure is essential, but how do you go about doing it?

The Introduction to Cybersecurity course covers common threats and best practices to secure and harden your devices and networks.
