ENRICH-0714 – Curr Iss on Zoom: Personal Cybersecurity (ENRICH-0714_CYBR)

How to Build Your Own Home Cybersecurity Program

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 Zoom course, cybersecurity expert Rob Carson shares how to apply corporate cybersecurity concepts and elements to your own personal use and cyber safety. In session one, Carson focuses on 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. You also review basic configurations for Windows and Apple operating systems. Plus, learn how to back up files to mitigate risk from ransomware. You leave with a spreadsheet checklist of what to review along with a monthly calendar of prevention activities. In session two, Carson shares a family cyber security incident and response plan. You then build a checklist of what to do after being hacked, and then run through scenarios to test and train yourself on your plan. “The overall 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 60- to 70-year-old family members who only have basic computer knowledge.”
