CSIO Launches Four New Cybersecurity Modules

Toronto, ON (Aug. 9, 2019) – With the success of the 2018 CSIO cybersecurity eLearning program, we are excited to announce the launch of a second installment of four brand-new accredited cybersecurity eLearning modules.

This on-demand training is available to all CSIO members at no cost. The new modules cover:

  • Security Awareness Training: Get an introduction to the fundamentals of important issues you will face with security awareness, such as safe surfing, human firewalls, the Cloud, and back-up and preventative care of your devices.
  • Mobile Security Basics: Learn about mobile security threats such as open wireless networks, lost smartphones, traveling with mobile devices, and downloading hostile apps.
  • Ransomware: Become aware of what ransomware entails, how it works, and how to steer clear of potential threats that cost you by holding private data hostage.
  • Social Engineering: From the viewpoint of the hacker, learn what red flags to look for in an email, over the phone and during in-person attacks that could lead to your private information being released.

Completion of previous CSIO cybersecurity eLearning modules is not required to register for the new modules. However, the new modules are an excellent complement to the previous cybersecurity training offered, covering new ground and providing additional information on familiar security subjects.

We encourage all members to register and share this with your colleagues to continue to update your cybersecurity skills and knowledge!

The four modules will take approximately 75 minutes to complete, and you can start, pause and resume them at your convenience. You will have four weeks from registration to complete all four modules.

These modules are accredited for CE hours in Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Ontario. You will receive your CE certificate from CSIO on completion of all four modules.
