The course was informative and easy to complete on your own time at your pace. The narrator is skilled and experienced and gives us information in everyday language, no computer jargon. Excellent course.
Very informative. I really learned a lot from this training. I am now more aware of steps to take to ensure that as an organization, we are able to protect the patient information. Due to this training, I am better equipped to perform in my role as I do have a better understanding of what cybersecurity is all about especially in health care.
This was an excellent refreshing and touched on all of the topics of what should be included in a Security Awareness and Training program.
There are a lot of good information about the security awareness and people should take this course to understand and learn how we are also one of the victim in cyber security and how can we avoid.
Robust cybersecurity lessons and training. It was easy to follow and provided the training needed to be proficient at my job.
This course is a true tour de force when it comes to cybersecurity. The sponsors focus on the issues and threats that impact on all of us. How, and to what extent, you implement the information and advice provided will depend on your needs, risk tolerance, and ability to withstand the consequences should a threat materialize. The material is well organized and paced in such a way that the “student” has time to make notes. Whether you are a student, a person responsible for a household, retiree, employee, corporate official, or security officer, you will find the material here you can understand and, importantly, put to use immediately in your cyberenvironment.
