A modern vehicle is the most expensive computer that you own. While car hacking may seem like science fiction, today’s cars have serious security vulnerabilities. These security gaps could allow a remote hacker to take control of vehicles’ computer systems and cause crashes.
Despite our increasing awareness of how to protect against malicious software and actors, we still find our online security severely compromised by hackers just waiting to attack our vulnerability.
Despite attempts to prevent or minimize cybercrime, illicit incidents still occur worldwide.

I came away impressed by the professionalism of both the students and instructors and left convinced that the future of cybersecurity is in great hands.
