About the course
In today’s world hacking attempts are an ever growing form of attack. All of us can remember a suspicious email or pop up on our computer that raised our attention. The frightening part is that computer hackers are getting so skilled, many of these attacks occur without the user even realizing. Just keeping an “eye-out” for these attacks doesn’t cut it anymore.
All computer users need a thorough training program to learn how these attempts occur and most importantly, how to prevent them from becoming successful. Whether it is your business or personal computer, most people house their most valuable information on their PC; from credit card info, to business proposals, to valuable documents. Don’t allow this information to be compromised due to a lack of awareness. Our hacking prevention training gives users the tools they need to make sure these attacks don’t take place. This Learn365 course features using case-studies, live demonstration videos and short tests to make sure users are not vulnerable to the attacks that are becoming daily occurrences for businesses and individuals alike.
The instructor for this course is Kevin Mitnick, once the world’s most famous hacker in the late 80’s. For over a decade, Kevin has taken his knowledge of hacking and is now a world leading Security consultant for Fortune 500 companies.

Each case study ends with its own short multiple choice test and ends with a final quiz at the end of the training.
