Course Description

Imagine if your neighbor broke into your house while you’re at work to “borrow” your electricity. You’d be pretty annoyed! After all, you never said they could use it, and they’d end up costing you a lot of money.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:
• Explain how cryptocurrency works and what is meant by “mining”
• Define crypto jacking and recognize the signs it's happening
• Implement ways to prevent cryptojacking
