SKU: 5391
Format: 1 - 10 users only

Social media remains popular for both private and professional use. Building staff awareness of the risks associated with it is therefore essential.

This human patch training course discusses the social media landscape, and helps learners recognise the common risks associated with it and the importance of using it securely.

The course is aimed at general users in all industries, rather than those in social media, information security and cyber security, or data protection roles.

This is a one-year licence hosted on GRC eLearning Ltd’s LMS (learning management system). Using the LMS, you can add your company branding to the course to aid continuity within your learning and development programme.

Recent high-profile incidents have proven that social media is increasingly associated with security risks and breaches. These range from staff accidentally leaking confidential information to criminal hackers gaining access through targeted phishing attempts.

Course objective

All users should be able to recognise the importance of using social media safely and securely, and be aware of some of the techniques they can use to achieve this.

Non-specialist staff in all industries.
