In this foundational professionalism skills training, Keith Barker teaches learners how to avoid malware, phishing scams, virus-laden software downloads, ineffectual passwords, and other hazards of digital life.
The internet can be a dangerous place for the uninformed about its dangers — malware, botnets, and scammers. That may sound scary, but if you manage security for your company, it’s even scarier. You can have the best next-gen firewalls at your perimeter, multi-factor authentication enabled, and edge services waiting for a DDoS attack, but it all means nothing if a malicious actor effectively targets an uninformed user.
After finishing this Workforce Security Awareness training, your users will find out which online habits improve security, and which can jeopardize it. Even the most tech-savvy user can benefit from a refresher on the guidelines designed to protect yourself and your company online.
For supervisors, this workforce security training can be used to onboard new employees, curated into individual or team training plans, or used as a professionalism reference resource.
