Far too often, people end up being the weak point in an organization’s overall cybersecurity plan. Protect your people and your organization.
Even with millions spent on security infrastructure, all it takes is one employee clicking on one wrong link to compromise critical data and information systems. End-user security awareness is a major issue in the business world today. The threat landscape is complicated, and the typical end-user is unaware of the ways in which they could adversely affect their organization.
With organizations being put under a microscope when it comes to their cybersecurity practices, the costs are too high to overlook the importance of effectively equipping end-users with the skills they need to combat the growing threat of cyber-crime.

This course will help you to: Understand security compliance needs and requirements Recognize and avoid phishing and other social engineering Recognize and avoid viruses, ransomware, and other malware Help ensure data security on computers, mobile devices, networks, the Internet, and in the cloud In this course, you will use discussions, case studies, and the experiences of your instructor and fellow students to explore the hazards and pitfalls of technology and learn how to use that technology safely and securely.

Defend Against Real-World Threats
A single email can lead to a multi-million dollar breach in seconds, and the employee responsible may not even be aware of their mistake. The problem lies in the fact that too few employees know of the dangers of social engineering, much less how to detect it. CyberSAFE builds an understanding of basic social engineering tactics, as well as the ways in which they can be used to compromise a network.
An Engaging Learning Experience
There are a number of options in the marketplace when it comes to end-user cybersecurity training, but most are ineffective in building a true understanding of the end-users’ effect on organizational security. Delivered in a collaborative environment where open discussions are encouraged, CyberSAFE is the solution of choice for organizations that are ready to take their information security seriously.
Learning Beyond the Class
CyberSAFE gives students access to a unique learning platform that incorporates a multitude of ways to learn with video learning, peer-to-peer learning through social communities, checklists for on-the-job support, assessments that check for understanding, and so much more. All of these ensure end-users leave class with the skills necessary to immediately strengthen their organizations’ cybersecurity defenses.
The CyberSAFE Credential
To train is one thing, but to validate knowledge is equally as important. After class, all CyberSAFE students can complete the 10-question online assessment to receive the CyberSAFE credential. Aimed at validating the knowledge and skills developed during the class, the CyberSAFE credential ensures that end-users are equipped with the knowledge necessary to be good stewards of their organizations’ data.
