Protect Your Data - Register for CSC 1002

In today’s digital age, we know how important it can be to protect personal data on the Web. This winter, the Wayne State University Department of Computer Science will offer CSC 1002: Personal Digital Security. Open to all majors (with no prerequisites or programming knowledge needed), this online course will teach students about the risks of using digital devices along with some ways to mitigate these risks. It may count as an elective for some students.

This introductory course is an ideal way to increase security knowledge and skills. It will show students how to easily and significantly reduce their exposure to viruses, hackings and other cybersecurity threats. Students will also learn how to identify, assess and repair devices that are already infected.

Whether you are planning on entering the IT field or not, it is valuable to have knowledge of these systems on your résumé. The department plans on offering the course in future semesters.
