Cyber Security

Note: Cyber security is difficult to learn on your own. Before your study of this topic can be approved, you will need to have a team. Your teacher can help you form this team. 

Cyber Security

There are so many aspects involved in cyber security. It is best to identify a problem that you currently see with technology and the security involved, then work towards developing a solution around it.
If you don’t like big businesses like Target having their customer data stolen maybe you want to look into data management.

If you’re tired of people’s YouTube and Facebook accounts getting hacked then maybe web security is for you.

Video Courses

Do NOT simply watch these videos. No learning will occur that way. You will need to do the steps to build the connections in your mind. In most cases, this means you’ll need to have a running version of Linux. Kali Linux is the Linux distribution for running the most useful cyber security tools built-in. So either (a) run a Kali on VirtualBox (b) run something like that on a computer at home and remote in to it from school with Chrome Remote Desktop.
