This includes: how to appropriately password protect a computer, maintaining internet security software to avoid computer viruses, spyware, and malicious code, and social engineering prevention techniques that maintain data security.

Objectives: By the end of this course, the user should:

  • Recognize common dangers related to Internet and computer use,
  • Learn secure email, Internet, and general computer use practices,
  • Learn password selection and management techniques, and 
  • Understand best practices related to identity theft protection, wireless networking, working remotely, and more.
