I’ve enrolled into one of your classes and look forward to starting in a few weeks. I have a question for you. What is the best security software for an older Mac>
Thank you. Your question is to broad without context. Its like asking what is the best engine for an older car!? Watch the course. We cover may different security tools for Mac.
I’ve used Macs 27 years. Never had any Mac malware that I’ve been aware of. I use Malwarebytes free. Be careful what sites you visit and what you click on and download. Avoid downloading pirated software. Don’t click on links in email. Change your DNS settings to use the quad9 service. Use strong passwords 12 characters or more. Keep programs updated. Some good common sense and knowledge goes a long way. 🙂
Good points here!
Thank You, Mr. Nathan
It is important to be up to date at this field, When I see any research the main thing that is become to the top is the security even in any future technologies the question will be “What about the security?”
Nowadays with the cloud computing and IoT SECURITY is needed more than then ever we can’t grantee 100% to secure our systems but we worked hard to doing Mitigate.
Thank You, Sir

Nathan, what’s the best laptop for cybersecurity work e.g., Mac or Windows
You want a machine that can run virtual machines. Look to get a minimum of 4GB for your system. 8GB is good. 16GB will run 3 or 4 decent virtual machines. Make sure you have a SSD disk and modern CPU (Last 3 years). The CPU should be optimised for virtualization, such as those with AMD-V or Intel-VT extensions. 1.3GHz or faster core speed.
You also need 250GB minimum so you have enough space to store the virtual machine guests.
If you want to try WiFi hacking you need a WiFi adapter that can inject packets and works with Kali Linux. These cost about $40.
I like the puri.sm products for Linux. They have a security, privacy and anonymity focus and can run most Linux distributions including Debian Linux, Tails and Qubes OS.
I also personally have a Mac Book Pro with top specs and run multiple Linux operating system VMs on it, plus a Purism for Linux too. But these are prohibitively expensive for many people. Its worth the price for me because im on my machines all day every day and run a business from them. Also the M1 chip in the new new Macs don’t support virtualisation well yet so watch out for that.
