Course Overview:

IoT Security Training – Hands-on

In this IoT Security Training course, you will learn the concepts that underlie the Internet of Things (IoT), enabling technologies, how the various hardware/software components work together to power end-user and infrastructure applications, current and projected future applications, IoT application creation, vulnerabilities created by the IoT, types of security issues and threats posed by the IoT, and techniques for prevention, protection, and remediation.

With the falling costs and increasing capabilities of computer and network hardware and bandwidth, more and more devices are being designed to work with the Internet. Each added device brings security risks for the device user and potentially many other Internet users. This IoT Security Training course examines the new and potentially quite serious IoT security issues that must be addressed by all Internet users.
