The malware and cybersecurity landscapes are constantly shifting in response to the actions of one another. On one side, cybersecurity experts are identifying, analyzing, and patching new forms of malware as consistently as possible so they can be detected by antivirus software and purged from infected systems before they can cause harm to their potential victims. On the other side, malware creators and cybercriminal organizations are constantly creating new malware, and altering old malware, to circumvent cybersecurity efforts and continue to infect as many computers as possible for a variety of purposes.

This course will identify the overarching concepts that make up the current information security landscape. It will provide an overview of the different types of malware that can infect a computer system, as well as the different techniques used to conduct both phishing attacks and identity theft. This course will identify the general malware trends over the past several years, and explain how the current malware landscape arrived at where it is today. Finally, it will describe the most commonly seen pieces of malware from this year, and provide both an in-depth explanation on how the malware operates and best practices to properly deal with each piece of malware.
