Cyber Awareness Training for at Home Workers (2023)
In today's era of work-from-home, cyber security has become a more complex issue than what it used to be. Now, you have employees that use multiple devices, working from multiple locations, on networks that may or may not be safe.
Needless to say, most traditional approaches to data protection and network security have been made obsolete.
There's a lot of uncertainty in this scenario—and uncertainties lead to vulnerabilities.
This course is designed to help businesses keep their remote work forces secure by following these three steps:
Step 1: Assessing networks, devices, and workflows
Step 2: Identifying threats and potential loopholes
Step 3: Training employees for enhanced cyber intelligence.
Aiming at your enterprise being able to administer a comprehensive approach to security, this course will teach your staff how they can keep their personal and company data safe from breaches, ransomware, spams, and more.
In today's digital world, the only way to stay secure is to instill cyber awareness into your staff. With the following objectives, this course accomplishes the same goal, turning your employees into agents for 360-protection:
- Tips on being more secure while working from home
- Understanding how to protect data effectively
- Learning the difference between safe and dangerous online activity
- Learning the importance of identifying potential security pitfalls
