With hacking exploits on the rise using the internet can be fraught with danger especially where financial transactions are involved. With a little knowledge of how the internet works behind the scenes and how hackers attempt to lay their traps the danger can be reduced significantly. We will show you how to secure your browsing experience and how to recognise the alarm signals raised by common hacking methods. You will learn about:

  • The HTTP protocol behind every web page request
  • Browser cookies, sessions and scripts
