Cyber Security

Fake News

In this “post-truth world”, it can be hard to distinguish fact from fiction when we’re reading a news article online, or when we’re browsing the stories that appear on our social media feeds. Fake news isn’t something new, but modern technology has seen it evolve into a booming business. Wherever you work, this is an enlightening course. Falling victim to a fake news scam doesn’t just put your reputation at stake, it can have financial consequences, too. However, if you know how to spot fake news and take the appropriate precautions, you can protect yourself from harm.

Learning outcomes:
  • Identify and explain fake news to ensure you remain well-informed
  • Recognise and mitigate the risk of fake news to protect your personal and professional reputation
  • Deal with the consequences of malicious fake-news links to protect your personal and financial information
