I just got a popup that my computer has been compromised! What do I do next?
I know not to open attachments that don’t look right in emails – but what else should I be doing?
What’s the best password manager? Why do I have to change my password every quarter?
It seems like every time I do an update on my laptop something breaks, so I just don’t do them any more.
We’ve done webinars on what IT managers should be doing to keep their networks secure – in this webinar we discuss what end-users – staff who use computers – need to know to stay safe.
We discuss simple procedures – recognizing that most employees don’t think security is more important than easily and effectively getting their job done. We show you how to streamline your routines and do your best to keep your organization out of the headlines for the next data breach.
Topics include exercising care when browsing, common threats, password tips, email safety, security on your mobile devices and other topics useful to users and trainers!
