Course description

As a security professional, you are familiar with the ways in which information is vulnerable to theft, destruction, alteration, and unavailability. But good security is not just a process of reacting to individual threats when they appear or closing holes when they are discovered‚Äî it’s a process of understanding how your information, by its very nature and the ways in which it is used, is at risk of being compromised. When you understand the risks you face from a foundational level, you can better prepare yourself to reduce or eliminate the chances of a security incident occurring and the impact it will have on your information.

You're in good company
