Introduction

As part of The Academy’s efforts to address the increasing threats to the security of information systems and data, The Academy is offering a free 4 Hour Cyber Security Awareness training course. This course will prepare you to choose a password that’s difficult to hack but easy to remember, how to use two-factor authentication on social media sites, spot malware, spyware, ransomware, virus, spear phishing and social engineering scams and much more….

In-Depth Computer Security Topics for The Academy’s Cyber & Email Security Awareness Training

Even the best cybersecurity software can’t stop you from choosing a weak password, clicking a bad link or installing a social networking app that snoops into your address book, calendar or geodata.

And that’s not all. With cybercrime and corporate espionage on the rise, we’ve entered the age where even private digital correspondence should be created to withstand public scrutiny. This course teaches you how.

The risks are everywhere. 11.5 million people are victims of identity fraud each year and that number is rising. And it takes 330 hours, on average, to repair the damage.

Protect yourself, your family and your work. Register in this introductory course right now and learn how to safeguard your data and reputation.

Who is the target audience?

  • Anyone who wants to minimize cybercrime risks when they use online communication services like email and social networks.
