Spot and solve hidden threats within IoT solutions

The explosive growth of connected IoT devices enables the world’s digitization, but also increases the exposure to security threats. You’ll use the latest technologies to perform vulnerability and risk assessments, then research and recommend risk mitigation strategies for common security threats in IoT systems.

The world needs more skilled cybersecurity professionals. Adding IoT Security to your skillset differentiates you from other job candidates. Consider becoming an IoT Specialist in Network Security by combining this course with your CCENT/CCNA Routing & Switching and CCNA Security certifications. Or pair IoT Security with the CCNA Cybersecurity Operations certification and increase your employability with a deeper understanding of the anatomy of an attack and how to mitigate it.
