  • Duration: 0.3 days

Description

How secure is your computer work environment?

  • Your company has a secure network and uses anti-virus programs and firewalls. You probably think you can do anything you like on your computer, without worrying. But is that really the case? Did you know that more and more digital attacks take place through the actions of an ordinary employee? Employees are the weakest link in computer security. Not everyone is aware of phishing, spear phishing and social engineering.

During this short, interactive training course, we will teach you how you, as an individual, can contribute to security at work.
