It is late to be advertising this course on the blog, but there is still space in the course if you would like to participate.
This course is about computer security. Computer security is a huge and complicated topic, so to keep it manageable here are the primary goals:
- To understand some of the security threats that exist in the big scary world, as well as the resources you might want to protect
- To make better security choices without being terrified into paralysis
- To have you identify, analyse and improve aspects of computer security as they relate to your own life
The course will be held Tuesday evenings from 7-9pm starting on March 13, at the Working Centre’s main building, 58 Queen Street South, Kitchener. It will run 3-5 weeks depending on student interest. In the first week we will discuss general security principles, talk about managing passwords, and choose topics for future sessions.
This course is directed towards non-experts. We hope there will be lots of interaction and a friendly, nonintimidating atmosphere.
