Fraud and Cyber Security Awareness

Reduce the risk of becoming a victim of criminals and scammers online.

About the event

Reduce the risk of becoming a victim of criminals and scammers online.

Employees are at the core of every organisation and are instrumental in keeping you secure. Whilst your team are without doubt one of your most valued assets, they can also be high risk when it comes to fraud and cyber security. More than 90% of security incidents are caused by cyber criminals targeting employees.

During this practical session you’ll learn what constitutes “fraud”; what your role is in helping to raise awareness (personal and team); and appreciate that it’s an ever-changing subject especially in light of technological and societal advances.

You will also gain an overview of a range of everyday cyber issues that you need to be aware of when you are using your computer, tablet or smart phone to access services across the internet.

Using examples and group discussions, you will be able to explore the everyday issues associated with fraud and cyber security and learn about the simple steps you can take to minimise the risks to you and your organisation.

By the end of the training you be able to:

• Appreciate the unique nature of fraud.

• Consider various types of fraud.

• Consider fraud risks and appropriate mitigations within your organisation.

• Undertake a fraud risk assessment.

• Identify best practice in managing fraud and current “hot topics”.

• Identify basic cyber security steps to be implemented to protect your computers, tablets and smart phones.

• Recognise the types of scams currently being used on the internet.

• Understand how to use social media platforms, online banking and public WIFI networks safely.

• Consider appropriate organisational controls required by businesses.

• Identify when a data protection impact assessment is required and how to undertake this.
