About this course
Financial institutions are among the most targeted industries by cybercriminals. The objective of this course is to raise awareness among employers and employees about emerging IT threats and attacks. Nowadays, uninformed employees can be easily victims to different types of threats. Moreover, inattentive employees can put the Intellectual Property (IP) of their organizations at risk. Today’s threats go much beyond the scope of conventional forms of attacks such as viruses and trojans but extend to other sophisticated forms of malwares which encompass spear phishing attacks, business email compromise, social engineering attacks, identity thefts, crypto jacking and ransomware attacks. Awareness is the key to prevention of different types of attacks and protection of Intellectual Property. In 2023, security awareness poses as a fundamental layer of security in addition to other layers of security already implemented by organizations.
The objective of this course is to raise awareness among financial employees on how to protect sensitive financial data against cyberattacks.
