A Day in the Life

With nearly 2 million data records stolen each day and sophisticated threats emerging at an alarming rate, it is imperative that we arm ourselves with the information needed to detect, defend and respond to information security threats as they arise. In this highly interactive course, participants will explore key information security concepts, examine threats/how to counter them and review safe computing habits that can be applied at home and in the workplace. The course is presented in a simulation-style format that follows two virtual characters as they go about a typical day in the workplace and encounter security incidents along the way. Learners will get a chance to practice good security habits in a safe environment by guiding our virtual characters through real-world security situations. By following the best practice lessons covered in this course, participants will be better able to recognize cyber threats and know how to defend against them.

Course Duration: 2 hours

The Digital Footprint

Are you aware of your digital footprint? A digital footprint is data created while using the internet. This could be information from emails, social media, or online surveys. Kent State University offers two types of courses for this topic. The first teaches the participants to be more aware of their digital footprint and how to reduce it. The second also teaches these topics but our team will analyze the participant's digital footprints. Come and learn how criminals use your personal information for phishing attempts, identity theft, ransomware, and other cyber-related crimes!

Course Duration: 1 1/2 hours


Cleaning Up Your Digital Footprint

Everywhere you go online leaves a digital footprint. Our Digital Footprint presentation taught you how a SMALL amount of information can become your LARGE online digital footprint. This presentation will focus on how to clean up your online profile while showing you best practices to safeguard your information. 'Data is money, don't just give it away.'
