Cybersecurity Awareness Challenge

A comprehensive overview of core information security concepts with learning activities designed to promote faster adoption of secure practices and keep organizational data safe – from data classification and remote user security to insider and social engineering threats and ransomware attacks

Course Description

Cybercrime is rising rapidly on a global scale and affecting millions of organizations, big and small. Experts warn that costs in fighting this threat could reach $10.5 trillion annually by 2025. Human error continues to be the biggest threat to information security. The training content we offer to your employees and contractors is the first step in fighting the major impact cybercrime has on personal information.

As an introduction to our cybersecurity awareness training programs, this course aims to reduce human error by teaching how to secure remote and home offices, ensure mobile security, avoid social engineering scams such as pretexting and phishing attacks, as well as create strong passwords to protect personal data and avoid data breaches. The Cybersecurity Awareness Challenge engages users by describing real-life security challenges and asking them to choose the best course of action for each challenge. This course is a recent update to course 5826 and includes a final 8-question quiz.
