Good Cyber Practices for the End User Mini-Course
Plan on joining this mini-course to learn good cybersecurity habits to apply and lower your risk of becoming a victim of identity theft, being held hostage by a ransomware attack or having your credit card exploited.
This mini-course is designed to answer a home user’s questions, such as:
- Can I tell if my email has been accessed?
- Am I the victim of spyware?
- Can password managers be trusted?
- How strong is point-to-point encryption, tunneling?
- Is there point-to-point encryption for email?
- How secure is the password protection for PDFs, spreadsheets, etc.?
- Should I keep my email password on my smartphone?
- How do I check if I can trust a cyber “help” service I found on-line?
- What is at risk if I allow another party remote operational access to my machine, even while I watch?
- Please keep in mind that covering good cyber practices that will keep you safe on-line will consume the time allotted.
