Course Introduction

Information is valuable, be it a person’s name, email, account number or passwords. Without proper protection, devices and networks are more susceptible to cyber attacks, resulting in information security breaches. Everyone in an organisation must be aware of different types of cyber crime and how you can protect your organisation’s devices and networks from attack, damage or unauthorised access.

This Cyber Security Online Training course takes on average 40 minutes to complete.

Course Content

The EssentialSkillz Cyber Security eLearning course describes types of cyber crime, such as hacking, phishing, malware, data breaches, identity theft, cyber fraud and ransomware. This way, you can understand what cyber crime is and how it can occur. But fixing the damage caused by cyber attacks is expensive and time-consuming. The course outlines how you can reduce the chance of you or your organisation becoming a victim of a cyber crime. It covers security practices, such as identifying fraudulent websites, implementing good data management and creating strong passwords.

While you should make every effort to prevent cyber attacks, you should also be aware of the signs and symptoms that your device or network has been compromised. The course outlines how to recognise signs of infection and how to respond. Early detection can help you avoid or mitigate the negative consequences of cyber crime.

Like all EssentialSkillz courses, this Cyber Security eLearning course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation, all at no extra cost.
