Mouse Create Cybersecurity by Per Scholas Course

In this course, students explore how and why cyber attacks occur as well as the effects they have on organizations. At the end of this course, students will be able to demonstrate the risks of cyber attacks and what each position at a FinTech firm can do to mitigate those risks.

This course was developed in partnership with Per Scholas, a national non-profit organization headquartered in the Bronx that provides free technology training to unemployed adults. More about Per Scholas here.
