We all love the films about hacking. Like when a detective is trying to get into a secret computer and manages
to crack the code just before the criminal comes through the door. These films are thrilling because they seem
inaccessible. But did you know, hacking isn’t just to do with glamorous cases like taking over government schemes
or robbing banks?

The most common hacking happens to ordinary people with any online account. And the only thing standing
between a criminal and your private information is a password. So you need to make it count.

What does this course cover?

  • The three ways that hackers attack

If somebody has access to even a small amount of your data they can use
this to guess passwords to more important websites, like bank accounts.
So, whether you are a casual social media user or the owner of a successful
website, equipping yourself with knowledge on strong passwords and their
uses will allow you to prevent your information from being targeted. This
course will teach you what to look out for and how to protect yourself.
