Protecting your Identity ( Microlearning)
Protecting your identity with Identity Protection eLearning
This course is available as part of the Compliance eLearning Suite in one great package.
Identity theft is an increasing online threat, whereby criminals can steal your personal information to steal from you and others, as well as commit crimes in your name.
The thief only needs to know your name, date of birth and current/previous address to steal your identity and use it to commit fraud. The more information they obtain, the easier it is, and harder to come back from.
This course goes beyond our cyber security and information security training courses to identify specific identity theft threats, detection methods and appropriate responses.
It outlines the risks of identity theft and the consequences that result, along with a number of ways in which businesses can protect themselves.
The online training concludes with a quiz to check your understanding of identity theft and how you can protect yourself against it.
