- [Instructor] This course will talk about malware basics, like what it is, how it works, how it is changing, why it is so effective, and the implications of being a victim. An intermediate understanding of computer systems and cybersecurity will be advantageous for learners to get the most out of this material. The general way that this course will work is by introducing a topic, delving into the material, and then me posing a challenge to you. Sometimes the challenge will be a thought process, and other times you can expect the challenge to come more in the form of a homework assignment.
I think in this way you will have a better opportunity to maximize your learning experience and get the most out of the course. With that, I want you to think about what it takes to secure an operating system, an application, and an organization. Now think about what it takes to write an application and all of the ways that it can be made insecure or how the software can become compromised. Let's go ahead and get moving. Next we will begin with the basics of malware in order to start everyone off with a solid footing.
