What does the Cyber Security course cover?

The course contains the following 7 topics:

1 – Introduction to Cyber Security

The first topic introduces you to cyber security. It identifies who can be a target and who commits this type of crime. You will learn about how human behaviour creates risks and specific risks associated with the Internet of Things. The topic explains how data protection laws affect you with respect to cyber-crime.

2 – Brute Force Attacks

The second topic is about brute force attacks. You will learn about secure passwords and how social media is used by hackers.

3 – Internet Cookies

The third topic explains why cookies are important and what they do. It identifies risks of allowing cookies and what you can do to minimise these risks.

4 – Social Engineering Attacks

Topic 4 describes four kinds of social engineering – tailgating, phishing, baiting and chat-in-the-middle. You will learn how to protect yourself from phishing attacks.

5 – Malware

Topic 5 describes malware – viruses, worms, Trojans, logic bombs and ransomware. It covers ways you can defend against malware attacks.

6 – Grayware

Topic 6 explains how grayware works – adware, keyloggers, bots and botnets – and how to reduce grayware on your device.

7 – Identity theft

The final topic explains how criminals steal identities and what they do with them. It also identifies the warning signs that indicate you may be a victim of identity theft and explains what to do if your identity is stolen.


Once you have completed the seven topics, you will be allowed to take the assessment. The course generates an assessment from question banks so that the questions change each time a candidate takes the assessment. This makes the training suitable for initial and refresher training.

There is no limit on the number of attempts at the assessment. In addition, the course gives informative feedback so candidates can learn from incorrect responses.
