Course Content
Course Description

Many organizations have begun allowing employees to use their personal devices for work purposes. Although convenient for users, the concept of Bring your Own Device (BYOD) has opened companies up to many security issues.

Therefore, users must know the risks of having personal mobile devices in the office and the best practices for mitigating those risks. This course is designed with the end-user in mind, and serves as the ideal starting point for anyone looking to enter the cyber security field and ultimately raise their threat awareness.

Through this curriculum, you will learn the differences between the security considerations for personal and work devices and the importance of following company policy when using personal devices at work. You will also gain a thorough understanding of what device permissions are and how/when to use them to keep your mobile device free of malware. The course also explores rooting and jailbreaking testing methods and how these methods should not be used for personal devices.
