A single email can lead to a multi-million dollar breach in seconds, and the employee responsible may not even be aware of their mistake. The problem lies in the fact that many end users aren’t aware of the dangers accompanying today’s most common cybersecurity threats, much less how to detect them. CyberSAFE helps ensure that your end users can identify the common risks associated with using conventional end-user technology, as well as how to safely protect themselves and their organizations from security risks.
Regardless of your computer experience, this class will help you become more aware of technologyrelated risks and what you can do to protect yourself and your organization from them.
In this course, you will use discussions, case studies, and the experiences of your instructor and fellow students to explore the hazards and pitfalls of technology and learn how to use that
technology safely and securely.
You will identify many of the common risks involved in using conventional end-user technology, as well as ways to use it safely, to protect yourself from those risks. You will:
