Since 2007, the international cybersecurity community has celebrated January 28 as Data Privacy Day (DPD). The goal of DPD is to raise awareness and educate individuals and businesses on the topic of data privacy and data protection. This year, we are celebrating DPD at Valencia College by launching a new information security training course available to all employees online through the Valencia EDGE.
Over the next year, the Office of Information Technology (OIT) plans to roll out multiple awareness and training videos and other resources to help employees do their part to help safeguard our institutional data and information systems. These resources will not only help you understand how to best protect institutional data, but they will include principles and practices that you can apply with your personal data and accounts at home.
The Security Awareness Fundamentals workshop will give users a solid overview of the most important issues they will face with security awareness. Issues include: incident response, malware, safe surfing and human firewalls, phishing and social engineering, mobile and the cloud, backup and preventative care, physical and non-technical security, privacy and policy. It begins with an explanation of the Triads of Information Security and ends with a post-assessment quiz.
