About this course...
In response to the coronavirus pandemic, we are aware that many organisations are implementing work-from-home policies. Yet for many businesses, managing an entirely remote workforce is completely new, which means they may lack the processes, policies and technologies that enable employees to work from home safely and securely.
In addition, hackers are jumping at the chance to take advantage of the current situation and are launching attacks against unsuspecting victims. Since January, more than 4,000 coronavirus-themed web domains have popped up. It’s suggested that around 5 per cent of these are suspicious and 3 per cent malicious. The websites would likely be used as part of email campaigns to lure victims to click on dangerous links. Cybersecurity firms are reporting a notable increase in attacks against a range of targets, all using the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as a hook to trick their victims into running malware.
The ‘Cyber Security for Home Users’ course provides easy-to-understand advice and tips to help individuals better understand Cyber Security in the Home and On-The-Move. The content is designed to familiarise individuals with the risks they face and will make them a little more “tech-savvy” and most importantly improve their security awareness.
The course covers topics such as the Importance of Cyber Security, Phishing, Ransomware, Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), Protecting Your Wireless Router, Staying Safe On Social Media, Securing Your Mobile Phone (both iPhone and Android), Smart TVs, The Internet of Things (IoT) etc.
You can earn 3 formal CPD points for completing this course.
