PRIV Community - 2021 Cyber Workshops
Our communities are at risk online. We are here to help.
Security Awareness Training starts with the acknowledgement that for community organizations, their employees and members are the weakest cybersecurity link. Our job is to make these same individuals the first line of defense against cyber attacks. Why? because these community programs HELP so many people.
We teach what directly impacts your life and the digital lives of those who trust you. First, we dissect current threat intelligence, summing up the most socially relevant and recent cyber criminal activity. Next, we create and deliver trainings, for non techies, which provide each person with a fundamental understanding of the cyber threats (imminent and ongoing). Finally, and most importantly we arm everyday citizens with the specific steps, and cyber tools that they can use to prevent, stop, or minimize the damage of an unexpected attack.
The life you lead online, the information you share or store digitally is valuable, not just for you, but to all what (or who) matters to you (family, children, work, education and more). Our workshops are tailored to your audience. We leave you with lesson plans, checklists, guides and more!
Our goal: When an attacks happens, our communities will be ready.
