Hacking 101: Intro to WiFi


We all use it, but how does Wi-Fi actually work? In cybersecurity, it’s imperative that you can answer this question. This 101 will give you a deeper understanding of this everyday tool. We’ll not only take a closer look at the logistics behind Wi-Fi, but also best practices for securing your Wi-Fi connection. Most importantly we’ll introduce you to spectrum analyzers and help you answer the timeless question: Why does my Wi-Fi suck sometimes?
