Internet of Things Attacks (CS009)

Imagine a world where you can feed your cat or dog remotely via your cell phone and the thermostat is set to your ideal, toasty temperature. Wait a minute – we already live in that world! Yep, the future, aka the Internet of Things, is here and it is very smart.

The Internet of Things (IoT) creates connections between multiple devices, or things. This connectivity enables data to be delivered to the internet, allowing for improved efficiency and reduced human effort. But there is a downside: security threats and cyberattacks. These can include device hijackings and home invasions.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Understand how the Internet of Things works
• Identify the security risks associated with the IoT
• Protect yourself and avoid an IoT attack on your devices

Why take this course?

It isn’t just in the home that we’re vulnerable to an IoT attack. Workplaces are also at risk. For example, smart assistants may be hacked, meaning that confidential data is exposed. Suitable for organizations and individuals, this course will show you how to tighten your IoT security measures and prevent an attack. So, let’s get smart about security.
