Course description

As an Internet of Things (IoT) security practitioner, you are responsible for protecting the security and privacy of organizations and personnel using IoT systems. The size and complexity of this task will be overwhelming unless you have a strategy for breaking it down into solvable problems and deciding which problems must be tackled first. A risk management approach to cybersecurity will help you accomplish this.
