Social Engineering - Security Check: How to Identify Hacker Attacks?

How to deal with hacker attacks? Train a large number of employees online to create more awareness!

Social Engineering is a manipulation technique that exploits human error to gain private information, access or valuables: One wrong click by one single user is all it takes for hackers to get access to sensitive corporate data. Attackers misuse typical human characteristics such as fear, cooperativeness or curiosity by manipulating humans in such a way that they avoid security measures and disclose key data. Even worse: Often companies react to attacks after being noticed by alerted employees. When it comes down to increase people`s awareness for social engineering risks, security check trainings provide the best support!

This e-learning program is aimed at all employees that should be trained to set the right measures in case of hacker attacks.The program is webbased and requires a current webbrowser. Users have to pass a final quiz to complete the training program and to receive the confirmation of participation.
