SAN ANTONIO, Texas (PRWEB) April 20, 2020
Saying the world has been impacted by the Coronavirus would be an understatement. It’s completely changed everything we thought we knew, from our level of preparedness to how we will assess risk for years to come.
The only thing we still know for sure is wherever there’s risk, there’s uncertainty, and wherever there’s uncertainty, there’s opportunity for the nefarious.
Last month Inspired eLearning announced the launch of our Working Remotely Solution to help organizations adapt to the rapid change brought on by the COVID-19 Pandemic. Now, in line with our mission to help organizations keep Security Awareness top of mind, and further defend against the relentless types of cyber threats that can occur outside the office, we’re introducing our new course Coronavirus Phishes & Scams.
This new course ensures your team is staying one step ahead of cybercriminals by teaching learners to recognize the current patterns and elements of coronavirus-based phishing attacks and scams and providing best practices on how to avoid falling victim to traps by staying cyber secure.
“There has been a dramatic increase in cyber criminals trying to take advantage of the current crisis with coronavirus scams and phishing attempts,” said John Trest, Chief Learning Officer, “Thus, we felt it was crucial to put a COVID-19 specific security awareness course out quickly to help people and organizations identify and defend themselves against these new threats. Used in conjunction with our coronavirus phishing simulations, this course will help learners safely navigate through this current threat landscape.”
This new course ensures your team is staying ahead of cybercriminals with topics covering:
- Stop the Spread
- What’s going on
- What can I do?
- Scams & Fake Apps
- Best Practices
- Beware the “Infodemic”
