When we think of the impact of the Internet on our daily lives, we can’t help but be astonished at the breadth and depth of the effect it has on all aspects of our world. For the vast majority of us, the Web is our means of accessing Internet resources. The Web employs an innovative and unique method of incorporating text, graphics, audio, video, and links to other sites to allow us to transcend geographical and other barriers as we use it to communicate, search, share, and buy. During the webinar, attendees will learn about basic concepts of security while using the Internet. This webinar is the eighth in a series of eight webinars discussing the fundamentals of cybersecurity (Cybersecurity 101).
