1.2 Obtaining Sophos Threatsaurus
There are lots of technical terms relating to cyber security and it can be difficult to keep track of what’s what.
Sophos is one of the major players in the anti-malware business. They publish a Threatsaurus to help you remember and define the terms relating to malware. The Threatsaurus is a plain-English guide, to help IT managers and end users understand the threats posed by malicious software. The Threatsaurus includes:
- an A–Z glossary on computer and data security threats
- practical tips to stay safe from email scams, identity theft, malware and other threats
- a guide to Sophos’s security software and hardware.
Save it and print it out if you need to, so that you can refer to it throughout the course. You’ll use it again in Week 3.
