Dear Learning Community,
We hope you are well and looking forward as much as we are to the new openHPI courses that will be starting soon. Tomorrow we are starting with the third course from the cybersecurity series:
Cyberthreats by Malware (starting February 10)
The spread of malware is a huge problem that causes a great deal of damage each year among both individuals and businesses. In this English-language course, the course team, led by Prof. Christoph Meinel, will address various types of this dangerous software. In addition to viruses, worms and Trojans, you will also learn what botnets and ransomware are and how they work. Lastly, the course team will provide you with helpful tips on how to effectively protect yourself from attacks. See you there!

Participants who have completed all three courses in the Cybersecurity Course Series will have the opportunity to take an exam on the complete material beginning March 1, and to receive a certificate of achievement and a qualifying certificate for doing so.
