Free Short Course: Phishing Countermeasures @ IT Masters


For those who might be interested in learning a bit about cyber security.

Join cyber security educator and author Bianca Wirth for a course about how to protect against Phishing attacks — an increasingly vital task for both management and technical teams.

Australians lost more than $80M to scams in 2017, and easily the most commonly reported scam method was Phishing. But these figures don’t include the cost to businesses, who typically don’t report phishing or scam results publicly. The opportunity for scammers, hackers and phishers to infiltrate the corporate environment and exfiltrate corporate data, as well as money, is immense.

This course is designed to introduce you to phishing from a people, process and technology perspective, and provide you with a high-level view of some phishing countermeasures you can implement in a business environment to help reduce the risks associated with malicious phishing activity.

We’ll use some freely available tools, as well as provide you with templates and weekly hands-on labs to help you take what you learn and put it into practice.

Difficulty: Intermediate
Duration: 4 Weeks
Enrolled: 863 students
Cost: Free!

Some useful information about the course:
Q: Is there a final exam?
A: Yes — the short course exam will be a timed, open book exam that you will sit at your computer.

Q: Do I get a completion certificate if I complete the course?
A: Yes — provided you receive a pass mark (50% or over) for course assessment, which comprises the exam and any available participation marks.

    Should be able to blitz it with my dodgy language skills! No "E" or amphetamines required. Once I get over 51%, those trying to "exfiltrate" will feel my filtrate caffeine wrath. (Decaf only).

    So this teaches one how to avoid dodgy websites and emails? So no facebook and other demonic sites like the internet?
