Today’s globally connected society makes it easy for us to do many things online. Unfortunately, it also makes it easier for criminals to take advantage of us.

The Security Awareness Company (SAC)
SAC added three new pieces of training content to the ModStore this month.
December 2020 Security Awareness Newsletter
Password management represents one of the most critical aspects of security. It’s also an area of security where people tend to take a lackadaisical approach, putting their accounts and confidential information at risk.

A new video module from exploqii was released in November.
Making a typo when entering the URL of a website – is that a problem? It could be, if cybercriminals have been expecting it to happen and have gone live with a plausibly ‘copy’ of a website whose address is frequently misspelled.
If you want www.apple.com but type www.appel.com, you could land on a website that looks like it belongs to the smartphone manufacturer but in fact does not. It was created by criminals with dangerous consequences for those who visit the website.
This video outlines best practice tips on how to best secure these devices and protect your organization against risks. Available in English US and German.
All exploqii content is available at the Diamond subscription level.
El Pescador added two new pieces of training content this month.
Remote Work Series: Policies and Procedures
Remote work is now a reality for many employees and it is important to remember how to ensure the security of your organization's data, and also all information from your employees, suppliers, and customers.
It is crucial that organization security and policy procedures are followed not only at the office but also while working remotely. This video module reinforces the importance of your organization's security policies and procedures to your users. Available in English US, Portuguese BR, and Spanish LA.
Security Beyond the Office with Quiz
An employee represents the organization even when they are not in the office. That's why the bad guys create scams to steal your information even when you are not in your organization's physical space.
In this brandable training module, we analyze different spaces where information may leak outside the organization. You will learn which habits are considered secure when you are not in the office, concluding with a quiz. Available in English US and Portuguese BR.
