When you say encryption to people they think of world war two and counter espionage. Encryption in reality can and should be used by everyone. It is a strong chink in your armour and can prevent data being intercepted or read if stolen from a website or by malware. Symmetric, asymmetric, block ciphers, stream ciphers, hashing and more are just some of the technical terms but what do they all mean?
Encryption is used every second of the day without knowing it, from browsing a website to using a banking app. It can be complex, and this course will take you briefly through the theory and then many hands-on exercises to actually understand the theory properly and how to protect data in many ways. GDPR has increased the need for encryption which assists with compliance, especially around data transfer between organisations. Practical learning is the best way to understand the theory.
