When I first started my career in IT I'd spend most of my computer time writing word documents on a clunky desktop PC. Now, almost 15 years later barely a few hours go by where most of us don't check our email, messages, and news sites all from our mobile device.
There is no doubt IT has changed the world significantly in the last 10 years and that's why I decided to make this course. I want to be part of the change by helping people better their lives through technology, safely!
During my career I have grown from being a geeky college student building robots during my spare time to working on large scale IT projects at a national and international level. I am proud to bring my long lasting experience in IT security together in this course to assist non-technical people making the most of today's technology in a secure manner.
