- [Malcolm] With the number and sophistication of cyber attacks increasing all the time, cybersecurity is a critical issue for government and businesses. It's also a rapidly growing area of professional work. I'm Malcolm Shore, and I've spent a career helping governments and businesses protect their systems against cyber attacks. I'm going to talk about the basics of cybersecurity, and the common tools used to target and expose the details of networks and systems and show you how to identify vulnerabilities which might be exploited in a cyber attack.
