About the course
Information security rests on three pillars: people, processes and technology. But for people with a non-technical background the technical security jargon is pretty difficult. The IT-Security world uses its own specific tools and the associated jargon. This course introduces you to the main technical tools and vocabulary in an accessible way.
This course is aimed at those who have a limited technical background and for example don't know terms such as NAT, DPI, VPN.
