Learn how to analyse and fight malicious code, such as viruses, worms, trojans, or ransomware. Become malware analyst!

Every cyberattack utilizes some malicious code and some malware. The average loss that a company suffers from a single malware attack is $2.4 million. Companies around the world are losing billions of dollars every year because of information security breaches usually caused by malware. The number of malware attacks grows yearly at an exponential rate. Malicious code or malware is a piece of code that intends to harm or disrupt computer operation of the victim. If you want to understand how malware and cyber-attacks work, this is the right course for you. In this course, you will learn how to analyse malware and incidents that happened using the malicious code.

This course is intended for anyone who wants to know how malware analysis and reverse engineering of software is performed. This course can train you for a career in any of the anti-virus companies around the world or can give you skills that you can use to analyse and stop breaches to the networks of organizations you work with.
