In this digital age, invisible threats lurk in every dark alleyway of the internet. Knowledge, awareness, and daily cyber hygiene are necessary to prevent cybercrime and fraud, preserve confidential information, and ethically serve clients. Through two hypothetical scenarios, we’ll explore the biggest cybersecurity vulnerability of all—ourselves. People with poor cyber hygiene are a prime target for cyber adversaries, who use tactics and methods like phishing, social engineering, and malware to exploit their weaknesses. We’ll explore the ethical dimensions of cybersecurity, the types of cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities, some daily preventive habits that can reduce threat exposure, some techniques for recognizing phishing scams, and the anatomy of a ransomware attack. Viewers will also receive a cyber hygiene checklist.
