These days nearly everybody uses a computer for work, leisure or both. With both private individuals and large organisations such as the NHS vulnerable to hackers and other online dangers, it is of paramount importance to ensure your details are kept private online, and that you have done everything possible to protect yourself from the myriad threats of cyber-crime. This comprehensive online training is the perfect solution for individuals and businesses who wish to take the necessary steps to do just that.
The Certified Secure Computer User course and exam is exclusively available at E-Careers and is the only place in the UK or Ireland where you can proceed in confidence by taking an online EC-Council accredited course. More information on this can be found on the EC-Council website here.
Who Is It For?
This training is suitable for a wide range of needs including at-home computer users concerned about security threats, and business owners who need a time and cost-effective training solution to ensure their employees are well-versed in how to use technology in a safe and secure manner.
Why Should I Enrol?
From a business owner’s point of view, investing in this training will save in-house IT teams time and resources as they will spend less time fixing issues that could have easily been avoided. This means they will be able to focus on improving infrastructure and working on projects, safe in the knowledge that the company’s employees have been empowered to work without compromising the organisation’s network.
From a more personal perspective, it is a fact of modern life that, to stay ahead of cyber-crime, it is up to us as individuals to get savvy and educate ourselves on how to avoid becoming victims. After all, the Office of National Statistics’ data has shown that cyber-crime is fast out-pacing physical crime in the UK.
All training has a real-world focus relating to day-to-day scenarios and the practical approach is heightened by access to EC-Council’s innovative iLabs tool.
