Intro to Cryptography & Cryptanalysis
Throughout history lives have been lost and saved by the actions of cryptographers and cryptanalysts. Cryptography is the science of keeping information secret using codes or ciphers, so that only those for whom the information is intended can read and process it. Cryptanalysis is the art of codebreaking or cracking a code or cipher without prior knowledge of the method.

Introduction to Cyber Security
Cyber security is the use of technology and processes to protect the devices we all use (smartphones, laptops, tablets and computers), the digital services we access and our personal data from theft or damage.

From online banking and shopping, to email and social media, it’s more important than ever to take steps that can prevent cyber criminals getting hold of our accounts, data, and devices.
