<Cyber Security Base>

Cyber Security Base with F-Secure is a free course series by University of Helsinki in collaboration with F-Secure Cyber Security Academy that focuses on building core knowledge and abilities related to the work of a cyber security professional.

About the Course Series

The course series consists of multiple smaller courses, each with a specific theme. Themes include a brief introduction to cyber security, operational security, web software development, types of vulnerabilities typical of web software, discovery and mitigation of such vulnerabilities, and advanced topics such as secure software architectures and cryptography. There will be several case studies as well as projects for participants. At the end of the course series, we'll also organize a friendly competition where participants get to find and fix vulnerabilities within a limited timeframe.


The course will launch on 31st of October, 2017. More information at: mooc.fi.

The material for the last year's course is still available here.
