My name is Kyle and I've been a cybersecurity analyst for over 10 years.
I am passionate about teaching best practices to beginners and well-seasoned professionals alike. As a White Hat Hacker (that means I'm one of the good guys), I have to think like bad guys to protect computers from them. In my career, I've protected the networks of large Fortune 1000 companies. And I am thrilled to be able to translate that to an perfect system you can put in place today.
You should definitely enroll in this course if:
You have the same password for every site you use
That same password is less than 10 characters
You store said passwords on a sticky note under your keyboard
You connect to any public WiFi
You don't know about 2-factor authentication or how to use it
You don't know about internet browser plugins that can protect your privacy
This is a short list of topics covered in the class, but if any of these apply to you, don't worry! You don't know what you don't know about cybersecurity and how to protect yourself. I'm here to teach you the risks and how to mitigate them - this course is designed to be this resource for you.
What this course isn't
This course isn't designed for cybersecurity professionals who are already in the business. The systems taught in this course are for people who are unsure of how to use the internet in a safe manner. As an IT professional some of these systems will be very simplistic. To those that are not in an IT job these systems are easy to understand and easier to put in place.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who is concerned about online safety and device security
- Anyone who has been hacked in the past
- Anyone who wants to know how to protect themselves in the future

Metro Area and has performed everything from certification and accreditation to penetration testing and forensics. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology, a Master of Science in Information Assurance, as well as several industry certifications.
Kyle's interest in computers started at a young age. When he was young, he was fascinated with the family computer and proceeded to build his own with used parts he found lying around or purchased on eBay (ironically, it was named Alexa...long before Amazon's). He was first interested in security after a home server he built was hacked. He was hosting his own website on a old desktop that was lying around when he realized that a hacker had defaced his site. This inspired him to pursue his career in security.
