He also covers amping up security and privacy closer to home on your personal WiFi and routers.

What you will learn

Over the course of more than sixty lessons of easy-to-follow and information-packed training, we take you through every aspect of the setup and maintenance of security measures on your computer system, including the importance of keeping your system regularly updated, web browsing, best practices, firewalls, encryption, anonymity on the web and antivirus software.

Along with learning how to keep your system safe, you will learn not only how to maximise your safety and  privacy online but also the security and privacy of your personal data.

At the end of the course you will be proficient in system security for the home in the three major operating systems and all major browsers. Plus, you will have personal WiFi that is hard to find and hack into unless you know the codes.

Who should do this?
