Course description

Chart Learning Solutions

Cybersecurity involves safeguarding the networks and devices you use to protect your data from online criminals. At the most basic level, this can be locking your phone with facial recognition or using a strong password for your private Wi-Fi connection. So, why should you care about cybersecurity? Whether you access sensitive data daily through company networks or simply use your phone to surf the web, any online activity can provide a vulnerability for criminals to exploit, a loophole they can enter through to access personal information.

Spam, online scams and frauds, identity theft, and issues related to online purchases are severe issues in the online world. Navigating the Web while avoiding these threats can be a challenging task. Phone scams can cost their victims time, money, and even their identity.

Sometimes called “vishing,” phone scams can also create entry points to more sophisticated hacking operations that can devastate individuals and organizations. Malware can leave you vulnerable to data loss, damaged devices, or even identity theft. With one innocent click, you could be a victim.
