About This Course
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who wants to protect themselves from the various security threats of the modern world
What you’ll learn:
- Become aware of the most common cyber security threats
- Develop the right mindset and browsing habits for security
- Secure your smartphone and all the information it knows about you
- Easily create and manage strong, unique passwords for all of your accounts
- Use two-factor authentication to add an extra layer of security to your accounts

Many people neglect taking steps to protect themselves online because they think, “Why would anyone want to steal my information?” Well, for starters, if you have any money to your name at all, there are plenty of tech-savvy criminals out there who are patiently waiting for the opportunity to take it from you.
Beyond that, they can also steal your identity to run up charges on your credit cards, open new utility accounts, get medical treatment using your health insurance, or take advantage of your friends and family by impersonating you on social media.
These are technical topics, but I hope to walk you through everything in a way that’s actionable and easy to understand. You can protect yourself and your private data, and you don’t have to be an IT expert to do it. This course outlines a step-by-step roadmap that you can follow to build a tight wall of security around your digital life.
