This course teaches about end user security risks related to everyday online activities such as using email, social media, storing data on public cloud, and using IoT devices. The course analyzes the security and privacy risks end-users should know to recognize threats like online scams, typosquatting, spoofed websites, and others to keep themselves and their organizations safe.
End-User awareness training is a priority for any organization and company regardless of its size. It helps the employee to understand the existing security risks and concerns and it cultivates a proactive behavior to detect and prevent attacks before they happen. Humans are the “weakest link” in the cyber chain, so attackers can prey on the flaws of human nature to target an organization/system. Security infrastructure can be high-end, yet a simple click on a link sent in an email can cause a breach of millions of dollars. Therefore, end-user awareness training is one of the most important steps for successful system implementation.
Awareness training helps management as well as employees of an organization to understand the security risks in the information system, to recognize the threats, and to learn how to properly respond to them.
This course covers different topics related to end-user cyber fundamentals. You will learn best practices on how to navigate the Internet in a secure manner for safe internet browsing, social media use, public cloud storage risks, and IoT Internet of Things security concerns. End user awareness training should be performed regularly in every company to include the employees in the security program of the organization to mitigate threats, attacks, and breaches of valuable company data and assets.
