Cyberthreats by Malware:

The Internet is increasingly becoming a place for criminal activity. In this course, we will teach you which malware and methods the perpetrators use to carry out the most common attacks. Of course, we also want to cover protective defense measures, for example against e-mail campaigns with malicious attachments that smuggle in the dangerous Trojan malware "Emotet" when opened. This is considered one of the biggest malware threats in the world and is currently causing a great deal of damage to the networks of companies, institutions, and private individuals.
