Building a Cybersecurity Toolkit
This is a University of Washington-created course that is released on the edX platform. The self-paced six-week course is designed to help learners to better understand the “type of characteristics and skills needed for cybersecurity jobs and to provide a realistic outlook on what they really need to add to their ‘toolkits’—a set of skills that is constantly evolving, not all technical, but fundamentally rooted in problem-solving.” The course is free to take, with a Verified Certificate of completion available for $199. The course requires on average two to five hours a week of effort. Access to the class began September 15, 2020.
