Get to know the “dark side“ of security and how to use “the force“ the right way. In this course, the students will learn how to use their computer without exposing it to most of the threats lurking outside, whether this is simple Internet browsing, “innocent“ usage of publicly available Wi-Fi, or usage of “secure“ corporate network.

Cyber security is an ever-evolving field with opportunities waiting for everyone with the interest to learn more and develop their skills in this interesting and demanding topic. This course will show the basic steps most of the hackers would go through while compromising the victim’s computers and it will define some interesting known and less known attack vectors and protections against them.

Students will not only have a chance to compromise many vulnerable machines by using different attack vectors, they will also gain knowledge that will help them protect their computers and networks against the attacks covered in this course. The course will also cover some of the latest attacks and methods used in the wild.

The prerequisite for this course is the understanding of the basics of operating systems, network and web applications. Nevertheless, the important concepts will be delivered during the class as a refresher. Everyone brave enough to step into this class will be rewarded with knowledge that is heavily sought after not only in military/government sector, but also in any security aware corporation/company.
