As an experienced Cybersecurity expert, I've changed a few roles and seen different approaches to security, mainly in large corporations. I'm happy to provide insight into how those systems operate, and more importantly, how they're secured. You will learn that it's not all about advanced technology you hear about these days, but also about people, processes, education, and analytical thinking. I truly hope you will find value in these lessons, and feel free to reach out shall you have any questions, suggestions, or ideas to share.


Later on, I will add tests in between lessons, including some additional information on differences between all the security disciplines: infosec, cybersec, physical, fraud...

Extremely basic, few concepts could have been explained better. e.g. Phishing, Application Security. Could have discussed what kind of apps, organizations use and how information security gets applied.
