Course Description

In the 21st Century, securing data is key for keeping your company, your clients, and your information private, safe, and out of the hands of those who would do harm. We’ll look into securing information at all levels: physical means of securing data, how encryption standards work (why they’re in place, and how they’re used), how to transfer information securely to your client or to your LSP, and have a look into the legal documents in place that could get us into trouble.
