This course is intended for professionals who use a computer as their primary working tool. We put all our efforts into keeping it as simple as possible, avoiding too many technical terms and concepts, but of course, it helps if you are not completely unaware of information technology.
It is divided into two main parts: theory and practice. In the first you'll find the basics of computer security from the point of view of an end user. You'll learn the importance of being well aware of what the real threats are and how to get by safely. You'll also be capable of recognizing suspicious signs from your machine and keeping a responsible behavior.
In the second part you'll learn how to set up an effective defense against the most common attacks from the main channels. Finally you'll be provided a very convenient best habits chart that you can print out and hang in your office, with the reminders for the most important security tasks.
