Coding and Cybersecurity

You might think coding is a mysterious art that only exists in IT departments. But it’s all around us, helping to manage our lives and keep the modern world working. Coding keeps trains running, cash registers bleeping, and phones ringing. And, believe it or not, just like any language, it can be pretty easy to pick up the basics.

But, with so much of the world governed by code, and because it’s easy to learn basic coding, it can be used in the wrong way, too. This means the need for tighter cybersecurity is constantly growing. And, in business, keeping systems secure needs to be top priority.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Identify common uses of coding in technology
• Recognize code-based cybersecurity threats
• Adopt safer ways of working with technology
