But Craig I hear you cry, this is cyber-security, not networking.
To which I reply, yes it is, now shut up and let me start!
Before we learn how to attack and defend, we need to understand what it is we are defending or attacking.
Now, in its simplest form, the answer is data, but where is that data?
If it moves from one device to another, no matter how, then we are talking about networked devices.
So, what is a network?
Again simply put, it is when two or more devices are connected together to allow them to share data and/ or resources.
