Why Study Cyber Security?
For some, studying cybersecurity is all about career development. For others, it’s simply a case of learning how to protect themselves from a variety of everyday threats. As our dependence on connected technology grows, so too does our exposure to potential cyber attacks. The consequences of a cyber attack can be catastrophic, but it’s true to say that the vast majority of online attacks can (and therefore should) be prevented. In some instances, it’s as simple as knowing how to protect your accounts and your personal information with viable passwords. In others, it’s about understanding the difference between firewall and antivirus security, along with how they work together. To build even a basic understanding of cyber security is to improve your capacity to protect yourself from danger. Irrespective of whether or not you intend to pursue a career in cyber security, you’ll find the teachings of this Level 1 Cyber Security Certificate invaluable.
This introductory Level 1 Cyber Security Certificate is perfect for newcomers, with no prior knowledge or experience required. Get to know the basics of cyber security over two insightful modules, with complete tutor support provided as you study:
Unit 1 - Understanding Cyber Security
The first module provides a detailed definition of cyber security, along with the main objectives of cyber security and the most common cybersecurity threats. The differences between internal and external attacks are discussed, along with the threat posed by rogue software, the motivations of the cybercriminal and the potential consequences for the victims of cyber attacks.
Unit 2 - Cyber Security Tools & Techniques
The second module outlines several important tools and techniques for effective cybersecurity, including password protection and multi-level authentication. Candidates learn how firewall and antivirus technology are used to thwart the attempts of cybercriminals, along with the concept of encryption and the use of digital signatures in cyber security.
