Module Description

The Internet is the 21st-century engine of acceleration and change. There are billions of connected users on the Internet, and every minute, these users are exposing themselves to dangers from cybercriminals. Did you know that every minute multiple websites around the world are hacked? Did you know that every year cybercrimes cost organizations billions of dollars in loss? The more you know, the more you can protect yourself and your organization.

Did you know that Cybersecurity was started in 1900 B.C.? Do you think it is a good idea to hook-up your new hot water heater to your home WI-FI network? Why would anyone ask a question like that? You will learn the answers to questions like these, and why the answer to the first question is related to the second question. Everyone should have foundational knowledge about Cybersecurity, whether you just want to feel better about using technology around the home, or you want to take a leap into all the possibilities that Cybersecurity has to offer. Join us on this exciting learning journey.
