Course overview

The daily commute can be a grind for so many of us. But at least there’s that 10-minute stop-off at your favorite coffee shop to look forward to. You can order a complicated drink. You can have a muffin. You can log in to the coffee shop’s Wi-Fi and unwillingly expose your organization’s network and confidential data to cybercriminals. That last bit doesn’t sound so great, does it?
