What’s the course about?

IT Social Engineering

There are technical defence systems such as spam filters, but if a cyber-attack gets through one of these, then the next line of defence is often a human one, which is why it is so important that your employees are made aware of the dangers of being duped into providing information that could make your IT systems less secure.

Cyber criminals use a number of techniques to get people do things they wouldn’t normally do, e.g. give their personal information to someone they don’t know. These techniques are often referred to as social engineering, which uses things like; the perception of authority, threats, fear (of missing out), and familiarity to fool people into letting down their guard regarding IT Security.

This e-learning course aims to raise the awareness of this important topic with your employees and help ensure they know how to deal with the issue when it occurs.

This e-learning would be a great addition to Induction processes and where you need to provide policy understanding and sign-off throughout the business.
