We are dependent upon technology and information being available and accurate. Cyber criminals are getting better at "hacking humans" through social engineering methods in order to get what they want. YOU play a role in protecting our resources which is why we're providing you with this course.

Strong Passwords

Weak passwords are letting criminals into online accounts with ease. Learn a simple method to create strong passwords that you can remember.


The #1 place you are likely to be caught off-guard online is your INBOX. Every day, cyber criminals are sending out e-mails that may seem innocent but are really meant to take over your computer or your online accounts. In some cases, they're even impersonating people you know to gain your trust.

You'll learn how to recognize and avoid these phishing scams with a simple method that, once you begin putting into practice, will become second nature to you.
