CyberSecurity Awareness Training - Don't Get Hacked
What you'll learn
- Students will know how to protect themselves from being hacked
- Students will understand how social engineering is used by cybercriminals
- Students will have an overview of social engineering techniques
- Students will learn how to identify, and thwart, a social engineering attack
In the context of cybersecurity, social engineering is the preferred tool via which cyber-criminals manipulate individuals into performing actions or divulging confidential information. Such attacks are very similar to a confidence trick or fraud, as it typically involves deception of some kind for the purpose of gaining information to be used against the individual, or to exploit vulnerabilities for the purpose of gaining more information or access into secure systems or facilities.
As the world becomes increasingly digital, cybersecurity threats are on the rise. Information has become the new oil, and security breaches take place on a daily basis. Cybersecurity experts predict that by 2021, cybercrime damages will cost the world $6 trillion annually. This is exponentially more than the damage inflicted by natural disasters in a year, and it is definitely more profitable than the global trade of all major illegal drugs combined.
At the end of this webinar, participants (social media users or employees of SMEs) will become more difficult targets for cybercriminals by understanding:
- how social engineering is used by criminals/ hackers
- have an overview of the commonly used social engineering techniques
- learn how to identify and, more importantly, thwart a social engineering attack
Awareness of cybersecurity is no longer a 'good to know,' but it is now an essential life skill.
