Learning Basic Cyber Security from Online Videos

If you’re interested in learning basic cyber security then
one of the best ways of doing so is by making full use of the resources that
are readily available. With the internet at your fingertips there’s a lot of
options out there, but one of the fastest ways to anyone to wrap their head
around the essentials of cyber security is by delving into many of the videos
that are online.

Types of Cyber Security Videos

Generally speaking, the types of cyber security videos that
you’ll find tend to vary – but most fit into the following sort of varieties:
  • Introduction style videos
    that give you a rough overview of cyber security and what it is all about.
  • Concept style videos that
    talk about some of the concepts associated with cyber security and may
    focus on specific topics such as exploits, viruses, or vulnerabilities.
  • ‘How to’ style videos that
    show you how to perform some of the activities that are associated with
    cyber security.
As you can imagine, each of these types of videos is useful
in its own way and when you first start there’ll definitely be benefits to
watching all three. Later on the ‘how to’ video guides may be a bit more
important however, as they’ll teach you how to actually do some of the things that
you want to do.

Where to Find the Videos

Nowadays there are tons of different websites and video
sharing platforms where you can find the videos that you need – but YouTube is
a fairly good place to start. Alternatively you could use Google’s video search
or even just look for cyber security websites that have their own videos.
Most of the videos that you find will be streamed, but
seeing as that’s the norm it is to be expected.

Saving Cyber Security Videos for Reference

It might be a good idea to save some of the more useful
cyber security videos that you find for reference. However because these videos
are being streamed, you’ll need to work around it and use a desktop recorder
such as the Movavi Screen Capture Studio to get it done.
With the Movavi Screen Capture Studio you’ll be able to
record the video easily however, and then you can use its other features to cut
the video into segments so that you only keep the parts that are really
important. If you like you can do this to several videos and then merge the
important bits that you’re keeping together.
Also you can use the other features to enhance the video
quality, insert customizable text, add background music or voiceovers, or even
use special effects and filters. It is worth noting that you can even use the
Movavi Screen Capture Studio to extract audio from video, just in case you want
to save the videos in audio-only format.
By saving the better videos, you can be certain you’ll
always have them on hand for reference should the need arise.
