On a CyberFirst Futures course, you’ll explore advanced cyber security threats to devices, apps and software, then discover ways to protect against them. The course offers an insight into not just the method but the motivation behind cyber threats. You’ll explore legislation, study typical behaviours of likely cyber attackers, and apply this new understanding of how to protect networks. You’ll even learn to secure personal devices too – and how to protect networks and devices for future employers. These skills will help you and your friends and family stay safe online.
