Infosec Institute Launches Holiday-Themed Resources to Help Organizations and Employees Stay Cyber-Safe
With online shopping fraud doubling in the first half of 2021 and nearly 90% of U.S. consumers planning to shop online this season, cybercrime and holiday scams are expected to reach record highs this year. From gift card scams to fake shipping notifications, hackers use the holidays as an opportunity to steal personal information, hack into organizations and scam individuals amidst holiday shopping.
To help organizations and consumers avoid these holiday cyber risks, Infosec is providing free resources, including a comprehensive security awareness and training kit, an ethical hacking training webinar for security professionals and a hands-on cyber skills challenge hosted in Infosec Skills for current and aspiring cyber professionals. Additionally, Infosec will extend its Black Friday discounts on instructor-led boot camps throughout December, making certification more affordable.
"We expect cyber scams to reach record highs this holiday season, leaving both organizations and individuals at risk of being hacked. The best way for organizations to prevent cyber incidents is training their entire workforce how to identify, detect and respond to cyberthreats — at work and at home. We’re excited to provide these free holiday-themed resources to make cybersecurity education and training more accessible — and a bit more fun — for everyone," said Jack Koziol, CEO and founder of Infosec.
