Course Structure

Module 1 – Introduction

Your digital identity and why it matters. This introduction module outlines the sorts of data we leave behind and how it could be used by others to commit many different crimes such as fraud and identity theft.

Module 2 – Device Data

When we connect to the internet and use the WWW, our devices leave a trail of digital data that can be used to identify and expose our online activities. By understanding what these digital breadcrumbs are, we can take steps to remove or alter them so that they become useless to others.

Module 3 – Browsers and Applications

Browsers and applications are the window to the digital world, however they transmit data largely without our knowledge. In this module delegates will learn how and what kinds of data is being collected and how to correctly configure browsers and digital applications in order to limit not only the information we let out but the access we are giving others.

Module 4 – Personal Data

This module looks at the sorts of places that we visit on the Internet and the types of data we may publish about ourselves, from Social Networks to blogs, e-mails and more. We look at how we gradually expose more and more of our work and private lives in the digital arena.

We also look at how to create secure digital identities with strong passwords and varying levels of anonymity to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of data mining when using social media platforms.

Module 5 – Online Fraud and Cyber Crime

1 in 10 people will fall victim to online crime. Criminals and those that would exploit our privacy, will go to great lengths to obtain our digital data, we therefore have to be very wary of fake e-mails and fraudulent web sites that try to trick us into divulging sensitive information. This module shows delegates how to spot and avoid such traps.

It’s not just the digital data we publish ourselves online that we need to worry about. We increasingly use the Internet and WWW for shopping, so inevitably we have to offer up sensitive data relating to our bank or credit cards – How safe is e-commerce?

Learn how to stay safe in the digital cyber world.
