Week 6: Network security
Your course guide, Cory, explains that earlier in the course, you looked at a range of security techniques and technologies aimed at protecting your online identity, as well as your digital information, from malware.
This week explores different ways of protecting the underlying communication networks and computers we use from attack and you’ll also configure a firewall for the computers you use.
