2 Day Workshop: Cyber Security Fundamentals

Privacy, jobs, and the future

Cyber crime will more than triple the number of unfilled cybersecurity jobs by 2021, with vacancies predicted to reach 3.5 million.

Every IT position has become a cyber security position now. Every IT worker, every technology worker, needs to be involved with protecting and defending apps, data, devices, infrastructure and people.

Who's this weekend workshop for?

This 2-day workshop offers a beginner to intermediate overview of cyber security concepts and tools. It is intended for:

Web developers

Security Enthusiasts

Those interested in pursuing cyber security as a career

In order to attend, we ask that participants have a basic comprehension of:
