As technology gets smarter, so do hackers, and so must we. With products joining the IoT at a rapid rate, data is constantly being collected. That data can be exploited by those criminals for their own purposes, so all of us should be aware of how to protect ourselves and our belongings. It’s extremely useful stuff to know.
Tech advancements in recent years have been coming thick and fast, which is great in some ways, but in other ways we’re more vulnerable to cyber security incidents than ever. This course explains how to define the Internet of Things, identifies uses for it, and provides useful information about how learners can implement security measures to protect themselves.
What do the following have in common? Toasters, kettles, refrigerators… Well, they’re all found in the kitchen, that’s true. But they are all commonly becoming part of the Internet of Things (IoT). To put it simply, these devices and thousands of others are being fitted with sensors that allow them to talk to each other.
Why? Actually, there are loads of benefits. Want a cuppa? Turn on the kettle from your smartphone. Connect your fridge to your shopping list and auto-order milk when you’re getting low. All these features have their uses, but BEWARE! They can also be exploited by cybercriminals…
We’ve all got devices that are connected to the internet these days. So, it wasn’t too much of a stretch to imagine a house full of those gadgets. We used this relatable theme, combined with a bit of our trademark humour and superb animation to create a course that’s both useful and engaging.
It’s a short course, yet it’s packed with useful advice. Learners will benefit from the included infographic document which they can download and refer to at their leisure, reminding them of the tips they can use to keep their tech secure.
