About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
Learners will identify risks and learn how to protect systems given real world system architectures. Learners will also use their knowledge to assess real world data breaches to determine what threats and exploits caused the data breaches and also what defense mechanisms would have prevented the breaches. Finally, learners will use the proactive security knowledge they gained to exploit a live system to show the risks of insecure web applications.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
