Learn Computer Security in a Week!

That’s the claim from Gust Mees who has devoted a great deal of effort putting together an online course for those desiring to know more about what they can do to keep their computer safe and their online browsing experiences happy.

On his blog, Gust has put together a week’s worth of activities that will take you to the secure side of computing.  Each day has a number of activities pointing you to some of the best of the web in terms of security.  If your computer is not sporting best of breed software, then you need to take a run through his activities.

Gust has selected great Windows and Macintosh software titles as part of is course.  Even if you’re using another product, it’s worth the time to check out the opposition; the more you read and understand about computer security, the better off you’ll be.

Gust is also a curator of related resources.  Check the top of his page for security stories in both English and French.  He’s always tucking away the best of what he reads.

If that’s not enough, check out his Scoopit! resources for collections dealing with security and education.  He curates nice collections there.  In fact, we’ve been known to share each others’ scoops at times!
