How to Build Your Own Home Cybersecurity Program
One Zoom Session for Windows Users
Wed., Apr. 10, 2024, 6:30-8:30 pm MT

Wouldn’t it be great if your home computers, laptops and other tech equipment had the same world-class security as big corporations? In this course, cybersecurity expert Rob Carson shares how to make that happen. The class begins with prevention as you build a master audit and activities schedule (change passwords, check backups, etc.), learn how to create alerts on email, and set up authentication for families using Microsoft and Google email. Then you review basic configurations for Windows operating systems. Plus, you learn how to back up files to mitigate risk from ransomware. You end up with a spreadsheet checklist of what to review along with a monthly calendar of prevention activities. Next, Carson shares a family cybersecurity incident and response plan where you build a checklist of what to do if you’re hacked, and then you run through scenarios to test and train yourself on your plan. “The goal of this course is to ensure that students leave with tools they can use to reduce their likelihood of being hacked and what to do if they are,” Carson says. “I’ve based this course on what I share with my family members who only have basic computer knowledge.”

Rob Carson is founder and CEO of Semper Sec, a cybersecurity consulting firm that helps small to mid-sized businesses grow and streamline compliance programs. He has held executive positions at InteliSecure, Cherwell Software and Celsus Advisory Group. He’s also a U.S. Marine veteran.
