Learn how to secure your devices with our Introduction to Cyber Security Workshop part of our Programming & Coding short course program in Sydney.

This is a free event offered by Sydney Community College delivered by Theo Anton, Manager – Cyber Outreach, Commonwealth Bank.

In this Introduction to Cyber Security Workshop, we will discuss one of the most potent threats in the digital world. In the modern era, the world is immersed in a technocentric society. The fact that we, as a society, are as reliant as we are on technology is a threat in and of itself. The risk is that the ability to cripple a whole society with a single attack is a real possibility. This workshop will focus on the introduction to cyber security.

Cyber security is a term used to describe a type of security that focuses on defending a company’s, or individual’s, information from being stolen by cyber hackers or from being sabotaged by cyber terrorists.

The fact of the matter is that the computer networks of businesses, government agencies, military installations, and even homes are all open to attack from both outside and inside. In order to protect these networks from computer hackers, cybercriminals, and other malicious attackers, there needs to be a strong focus on cybersecurity.

If you want to learn the basics of Cyber Security and protect yourself and/or your workplace, then this workshop is for you.
