Module 2 -The Four Areas of Attack

The Four Areas of Attack

In this module we will be covering the four main areas of cyber-attacks.

Network based, web application, malware and social engineering.

These areas are interlinked and as you will learn, most attacks are realised through social engineering methods.

There are many more methods/areas of attack, however these are some of the most common and most dangerous.

There may be some sections of this module which on the surface you may question why this information is important. The more you understand about how, why and through what means attacks take place then the better position you will be in to prevent/protect from such attacks.
