Course Overview

To the surprise of absolutely no one, trust is broken on the Internet. Wherever you go online, the advice is the same–make sure you understand what’s behind each button before you click it.

We will explore the possibilities they offer for building applications on a solid digital foundation of trust and examine how these technologies can make the Internet safe. It’s quite a challenge!

The course is addressed to a wide-ranging audience, walking the line between business and technology.
