The Phishing Awareness Online Training Course introduces and the explains the cybersecurity threat posed by social engineering and phishing. It puts in context the vast scale of the threat and the damage it can cause to both individuals, organisations across all sectors of the economy and society. It describes the varying levels of sophistication in phishing attacks. The different types of malware are explained as well.
Through a combination of case studies and interactivities, learners develop an understanding of the checks and practices they can implement themselves to prevent falling victim to phishing. Phishing attacks try to exploit users via email, social media, phone and the web. All these avenues of attack are discussed.
The Phishing Awareness course finishes by reinforcing key cybersecurity best practices such as strong passwords, using security software and updating software regularly. Like all the EssentialSkillz courses, the course can be customised to meet your needs, at no additional cost. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation.
