Cybersecurity is an issue for everyone. If you work with a computer or just use one privately, you’re susceptible to a cyberattack. Imagine what a criminal would do with your personal information, or worse, if, through you, they access your employer’s data, potentially affecting many more people. It doesn’t bear thinking about. You simply must prepare yourself, and this course will help you do that.
This course will help you recognise common types of phishing attacks to help avoid them. It explains the consequences of these attacks, such as, well, losing all your data. Or infecting any networked computers. Luckily, there’s also plenty of information to help you protect your tech from such an attack. Take a look.
Ever heard of Phishing? We’re not talking about an angler baiting their rod and casting to see what they can hook. Oh, hang on. We sort of are. Phishing is a type of cyberattack that a criminal might use to get something from you. Personal information, money directly, or something else entirely. They lure you in and hope you bite.
Alright, it’s a lazy analogy, but it’s an appropriate one. Phishing techniques are becoming more sophisticated, and if you don’t know how to protect yourself, you too could become another victim of this fast-growing weapon in a cybercriminal’s armoury.
How did we come up with the fishing theme for a phishing course? Alright, it seems like a lazy choice. But think about it – it’s an apt analogy. The weakest part of a computer’s security is the user, so they have to lure you in with bait and wait for you to fall for the scam, hook, line, and sinker. Plus, the visuals here work really nicely at keeping learners engaged, showing good examples of real-life phishing situations with relatable scenarios.
Within the course, you’ll find interactive sections where the learner has to click fish to get a useful pop-up tip about protecting themselves. It’s a nice way to slow things down so the information sinks in. The whole course is also available as a workbook, with key points as a handy infographic, too, so learners can take it away and refresh their knowledge at their own pace.
Everyone has the right to learn and learner need can vary demanding on environment or disabilities. This course comes with transcripts so people have text options for an media, subtitles for all videos and is screen reader friendly with alternative text.
We take a number of steps to ensure visuals and navigation is easy for your people. For more information on the steps we take for accessibility check out how we make out courses.
