  • Distinguish the various attacks types that target wireless LANs, Bluetooth, mobile devices, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices
  • Fundamentals of Wireless Security
  • Anatomy of a Secure Connection
  • This breaks down why a wireless connection is inherently less secure than a wired connection
  • Also identifies where and how we can bolster security to create as secure of a connection as possible Security through design
  • Establishes the importance of establishing appropriate access policies and incorporating security into our design instead of adding it after the fact
  • Weak Security Mechanisms
  • Weaker security mechanisms are easier to configure, but that comes at a cost.
  • Effective Security Mechanisms
  • Contrasts why these mechanisms are more secure than other solutions

After completing this online training course, students will be able to:

  • Designing of your security
  • Effective security mechanisms
  • Properly setting up your device to securely connect to your wireless network
