The cyber security workshop aims to provide participants with knowledge about information and cyber security threats and the techniques that can be used to keep employees and co-workers safe from nefarious attacks. The instructor will use real world examples to impart the basic concepts and principles of how to apply practical and effective information and cyber security. Participants will not be overwhelmed by technology and engineering jargon but will be presented with a simple and comprehensive approach on information and cyber security topics that all private and public organizations face such as threats, email protection techniques, password policies, using the web safely, spotting on-line scams and social engineering risks. The workshop will end with a general discussion about the changes in the diversity of information and cyber security roles and careers in the present and future of places of work.
