Cryptography, Steganography and Malware

One of the few courses in the market dedicated to Cryptography, Steganography and Malware Analysis.

Steganography is the process of encrypting data while cryptography encrypts the existence of the data itself. These two techniques are invaluable in the age of data dominance. This course is one of the few of its kind focussed entirely on instruction in these key concepts. It is detailed and covers everything from the fundamentals to the more advanced techniques.
