Course Description

Web and email servers are the workhorses of the Internet: we couldn't run government, businesses, or our personal lives without them! However, the information exchanged through web and email servers can offer a tempting target for cyber attackers. Participants can request 1 CPE credit for completing this course.

This webinar includes the following information and more:
