About The Course

Annual Certificate in Cyber Security for Parents and Carers (International Schools) (2022-23)

Smartphones, computers and the internet are a fundamental part of modern life for most households. From online banking and shopping, to email and social media, it's more important than ever to take steps that can prevent cyber criminals getting hold of accounts, data, and devices which they can use for profit, blackmail or to cause reputational damage.

This course provides you with the knowledge and skills to understand what cyber security is, the different types of cyber threats and the measures you can take to protect yourself from harm.

Split into bite-sized modules, the training has been designed to provide maximum learning potential in the leanest, most cost-effective and most time-efficient manner. It has been produced in high-quality remote video CPD format which is accessible on any device, any time, anywhere.

Created by KryptoKloud, an independent cyber operations and intelligence company, this course is split into six modules. The course consists of learning through video modules, completion of tasks, further reading and viewing external resources. Please consider this when planning and allocating your time. To successfully understand and achieve the objectives of the course, learners are expected to engage in all aspects of the learning process and complete all relevant activities to ensure they can successfully apply the knowledge and skills they have gained in their own setting.
