Course Description

Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting systems, networks, and programs from cyber threats and exploits. Therefore, organizations are required to allocate a growing number of resources to protect their data from unwanted and unauthorized data breaches and disclosures. In this course, you'll explore the possible constraints that may prevent an organization from having an ideal IT security solution including budget, regulations, design limitations, and political issues. Discover driving forces in cybersecurity including money, mobile devices, education, and new technologies, and explore the risks associated with portable electronic devices (PED) such as geolocations. Explore how supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems can be used to monitor important infrastructure including electric grids, water supplies, and pipelines, and discover how most people now use the Internet daily to send email, shop, and watch TV. Lastly, discover how cybersecurity and IT standards continue to evolve and how no one standard is foolproof or future proof. This course was originally created by Global Knowledge (GK).
