TestOut has three powerful courses that thoroughly cover cybersecurity concepts. Students learn how to secure corporate networks, how to perform counter measures to hackers attacks, and how to perform tests using tools to analyze network vulnerabilities. This type of knowledge and experience help students to understand how to counter these vulnerabilities and improve network security.

You’ve probably heard some funny and “scary” cybersecurity stories. To go along with Halloween, we invite you to listen around the campfire as TestOut’s video editor, Gerry Graves (actor and former singer in the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square), reads aloud true cybersecurity stories that might frighten you or just make you laugh.
In this Teachers Lounge we discuss building a Cybersecurity Program at your high school to get your students ready for future careers.
