|Event Introduction||There is so much cyber security advice available these days, many people find it hard to know where to start. Some organisations struggle to explain why cyber security is something that all staff should care about. Even larger organisations (with dedicated training resources) find it difficult to explain the technical aspects of cyber security in ways that are relevant to their staff, so that they can help keep their organisations (and themselves) safe from cyber attack.
Equally, many small or medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and charities may not have the resources to put any cyber security policies and training in place at all, leaving staff exposed as their frontline defence against cyber attacks.
For these reasons, the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has produced a new e-learning training package: 'Stay Safe Online: Top Tips for Staff'. The training is primarily aimed at SMEs, charities and the voluntary sector, but can be applied to any organisation, regardless of size or sector. It's been deliberately designed for a non-technical audience (who may have little or no knowledge of cyber security), with tips that complement any existing policies and procedures.
|Event Content||Regardless of the size or type of organisation you work for, it is important to understand why you might be vulnerable to cyber attack, and how to defend yourself. Not only that, but also to understand that sometimes staff, with the best of intentions just
make a mistake, for example by emailing something sensitive to the wrong email address. This can have serious consequences and impacts on service users, especially for those working with children and young people.
The training introduces why cyber security is important and how attacks happen. It covers four key areas:
• defending yourself against phishing
• using strong passwords
• securing your devices
• reporting incidents ('if in doubt, call it out')
This training has been produced by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC). The NCSC aims to help make the UK the safest place to live and work online. It provides a single point of contact for SMEs, larger organisations, government agencies, the general public and departments.
