Course Name: Phishing User Awareness

“How To Catch a Phish” is a concise overview of current phishing facts and figures that prove multiple layers of cyber-crime defense and prevention (web filters, web gateway blacklists, take down vendors etc), and end-user education are not working.

At the end of the course, you will be asked to take a Final Exam.

Upon successfully passing the Final Exam, we will issue you with a Certificate of Completion, which you can use towards maintaining professional cybersecurity certificates, such as Security+, CISSP and CEH.

The course includes up-to-date case studies demonstrating how easy it is to set up a phishing attack and how basic, but yet effective, phisher strategies are at capturing their victims information.

Students will also learn about a simple strategy that they can use immediately to avert the remediation costs and long term loss of brand loyalty/ reputation caused by phishing attacks.

This course has been designed for information security professionals, especially CIO’s, CTO’s and CISO’s who work within the retail and financial service sectors and whose customers have been, and will continue to be, the subject of phishing attacks.
