Introduction to Cyber Attacks
In this course, you will learn how computer networks are protected by sophisticated software engineering practices, and how malicious software can infiltrate networks and infect users. We will take a closer look at various types of attacks and show you how they work. We will also cover common architecture techniques used to protect valuable networks, such as software virtualization and firewall technologies.

You will learn about the basic information security system that computer networks have, what kind of attacks they can carry out, and what you can do about them. We will take a closer look at various types of attacks and show you how they work. We will also cover common threats and protection methods, such as firewalls, encryption, and deduplication.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:
– identify common types of attacks that computer networks are subjected to
– understand how software engineering practices protect valuable computer networks
– identify common types of protection mechanisms used to protect valuable computer networks
– apply different design patterns and techniques to different types of computer networks
– protect data using software virtualization, firewall technology, and other methods
– protect valuable computer networks
– apply different design patterns and techniques to different types of computer networks

This is the second course in the Cisco Networking Basics Specialization. The Specialization will focus on security in the network environment, with the goal of identifying and implementing solutions to improve the security of computer networks.

Note: This is a focused course with a lot of emphasis on the specific of each type of attack and protection techniques. While every solution is important, applying one method over another is not always easy. In this course, we will look at different methods to protect different types of information, as described in the order in which they are typically implemented. While it may seem like an exercise in futility that we are focusing on attacks against computers, it is in fact an exciting opportunity to learn about new protection techniques and find out which approach is best suited to protect information at different levels of protection.

All of the lectures, quizzes, and other activities will be available for free.

Week 1: Your Computer’s Secure Environment
During week 1, we will look at how your computer is secured by your software engineering practices, and how information security is created. We will also look at how malicious software can infiltrate computer networks and infect users. We will take a closer look at various types of attacks and show you how they work. Week 2: Firewall Technology and How It Protects Your Information
Week 3: Information Security in the Network Environment
Week 4: Network Security Services
Week 5: Security at Different Levels of Protection
