Advanced persistent threat (APT): A stealthy computer network attack in which a person or group gains unauthorized access to a network and remains undetected for an extended period. Threat modeling: The process of analyzing the security of the organization and determine security holes. White hat: A skilled hacker who uses skills and knowledge for defensive purposes only. The white hat hacker interacts only with systems for which express access permission has been given. Black hat: A skilled hacker who uses skills and knowledge for illegal or malicious purposes. Gray hat: A skilled hacker who falls in the middle of the white hat and black hat hackers. The gray hat may cross the line of what is ethical, but usually has good intentions and isn't malicious like a black hat hacker.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
