Course Description
This program is designed for the everyday user of computers and networks, which will bring security knowledge in an easy to understand language without all the techno-speak. This course is intended for all computer users, from the Executive Manager to the Mailroom Assistant.

The program begins with an introduction to security, including issues such as: What is Security? and What is Security Awareness? The course then moves into a very high-level discussion on networking and how computers talk to one another. The basics of computer and network security are discussed, followed by a chapter on creating strong passwords.  The course also describes how to share and handle information (such as files and folders), followed by a discussion on what a virus is, how a computer can get a virus, and how to prevent a computer from getting a virus.  After this discussion, the course shows why backups are important, how they are made, stored and later used.  Before an ending chapter on Software Piracy, there is an outstanding chapter on how to use the Internet and Email securely.

Upon course completion, students will receive a course manual for future reference, and a Certificate of Completion.
