Personal Cyber Security

Workshop description

Nowadays our computers, phones, and tablets are filled with personal information – but how can we keep that sensitive information out of the wrong hands?

In this workshop, you’ll learn about the most common cyber security attacks, but more importantly, how to take steps to protect yourself. You’ll see live demonstrations of attacks and learn how to spot them. These tips will help you feel more confident about using a computer safely. No technical knowledge is required.

 

 

 

 

Workshop outline:

  • Introduction to Personal Security
  • Password Security: how to pick a stong password
  • Social Engineering: this is the art of manipulating people so they give up confidential information. This is used by attackers because it’s much easier to exploit your natural inclination to trust someone rather than to hack your software.
  • Phishing: this is when someone attempts to obtain sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details, by masquerading as a trustworthy entity (such as a bank)
