The Open University provide a free online course to learn about cyber security, and you don't need prior knowledge to take part.
I have already signed up to this course and will provide a review once I am done. My course starts mid-October and lasts eight weeks, with about three hours needed per week.
Apparently you don’t need any previous software or development knowledge to do it – which hopefully means it’s fairly jargon-free.
The website assures us:
“The course does not assume any prior knowledge of computer security and can be enjoyed by anyone interested in improving the security of their digital information.”
