Introduction to Information Security LiveLessons provides technical professionals with a relatively brief, high-level overview of information security concepts, including the fundamental steps needed to secure a system, the types of threats and vulnerabilities they may encounter, and what steps can and should be taken to mitigate those threats and vulnerabilities.


Information security directly impacts virtually every type of business. While related issues appear in the media more and more, it's typically in a fragmented fashion that really doesn't help give the people tasked with protecting organizational data and other assets a "big picture" view of what the real threats and vulnerabilities are, or what steps should be taken to mitigate them. In this video training, Scott offers a relatively brief, coherent high-level overview of the various types of threats and what steps can and should be taken in response.
