Security Awareness Fundamentals Overview

Security Awareness 101: A great introductory overview, this course introduces users to key concepts such as the Security Triads, the Top Ten Security Awareness issues facing users today, and more, as it builds cyber, physical, and human security into a coherent whole.

Personal Identifiable Information: Understand how criminals use Personally Identifiable Information (PII), to commit cyber crimes (such as ID theft). This course focuses on understanding exactly what constitutes PII, the laws surrounding it, and most importantly, how to protect it.

Passwords and User Authentication: Passwords are the first line of security defense for most networks and data and no one can afford to lose control of them. Learn why, 'easy to remember and hard to guess' passwords are important, as well as effective methods for creating and managing them.

How to be a Human Firewall: Understand the three main security domains and learn how to protect them. We examine internal vs. external controls, email security, situational awareness, reporting the unusual, tailgating and badges, road apples (USB), cameras and video, phone messages, human detection and reporting, and many more tips and tricks to help keep your organization safe by turning employees into human firewall's.

Social Engineering: One of the most common non-technical kinds of intrusion that your employees need to know how to identify and prevent a breach. This course looks at the practice of social engineering through videos of real demonstrations, examples in pop culture, and how it's used in emails. Types of social engineering discussed include classic con men, email scams, telephone pretexting, dumpster diving, and the 'Good Samaritan Attack.'

Mobile Security: Explores the three domains of security from the perspective of smart phones, tablets, and laptops. We look at how the smart phone and tablet phenomenon are reshaping the way we conduct business, the steps we should take to protect our mobile data, and how we can secure all wireless connectivity. Most of the course deals with smart phones and tablets, but a small section is devoted to laptop security - both cyber and physical.

Expected Learning Outcomes:

  • Better protection of electronic information on PCs, Tablets and Wireless devices.
  • Reduced risks associated with mobile devices (USB Drives, Flash Drives).
  • Safe use of social media in the workplace.
  • Safe use Wi-Fi in public areas, like airports and public places.
