Securing dataIn this course, you will learn the details of protecting and securing data from unauthorized access.
Course descriptionIoT technologies may provide a vast increase in the quality and volume of data available to users and organizations, and with this comes an even greater need to ensure that data is secure when it is stored, processed and transferred.
Protect data in use

Not only may data be vulnerable when it is being transferred or in storage, but data may also be vulnerable even when it is in use — in memory, or even when it is undergoing active processing within a processor or microcontroller.
Protect data at rest

In the life cycle of IoT data, there are numerous points where it "rests" in storage. Some of these locations are inherently more vulnerable than others, but data must be protected in all of the these locations.
Protect data in motion

When data is moved across a network or between software processes, it may be vulnerable to unauthorized viewing or modification. Compromised data may include such things as passwords, session tokens, encryption keys, private user information, account details, documents, metadata and executable code. Fortunately, there are effective strategies for protecting data in motion.
Use cryptography appropriately

Cryptography is a primary tool for securing data, but when it is improperly implemented, it can leave data vulnerable while providing a false sense of security.
