Cyber Awareness Training by Layer 8 Security
September 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
There’s a general impression that only larger companies are targeted by cyber attacks; however, the reality is that criminals don’t care whether you’re an individual or part of a smaller business – all that matters to them is getting their hands on your sensitive data. Because of this, all individuals and organizations need to do their part in protecting themselves by implementing cybersecurity best practices in their lives.
Following Layer 8 Security’s presentation, you’ll be able to:
- Explain why cybersecurity is not just an ‘IT’ problem, but also a ‘people’ problem
- Understand the external threats facing individuals and businesses today
- Identify what you can do to have a higher level of cyber awareness in your daily routine
Concepts to be covered:
- What is cybersecurity? Why should it matter to you?
- Illustrating the cyber threats confronting individuals and companies, using current events
- Who are the ‘bad guys’? What are they looking for? And why?
- Demonstrate how attackers gather information via Facebook, LinkedIn, social engineering, and other vectors
- Practical ‘cyber hygiene’ tips and tricks to keep you secure
