Using Social Media Challenge

Keep your employees safe on Social Media with our interactive video challenge. This course is available as part of the Compliance eLearning Suite in one great package.

Course Overview
Combining immersive eLearning with interactivity and gamification, the Using Social Media Challenge is designed to be as engaging as it is informative. Throughout the course, learners follow 'John' as he leads a sophisticated team of cyber-criminals determined to use social media to compromise the personal data of 'Jane' and her colleagues.

Faced with hacking attempts like Phishing scams, Spyware, viruses, and cloning, learners are challenged to thwart John's criminal efforts and must decide the right course of action to win all six security shields and avoid a cyber-attack.

What to Expect
Suitable for employees at all levels, the key learning outcomes of this course are:


  • The dos and don'ts for using Social Media safely
  • How to spot Phishing scams and emails
  • The consequences of careless use of Social Media
  • How to keep your personal details secure when using Social Media
  • What measures to take to protect yourself and your organisation if you suspect a hacking incident has taken place
  • Raised awareness of different infiltration techniques used by hackers on Social Media

It's likely that close to 100% of your employees own a social media account of one type or another. However, as the prominence of social media grows (along with the amount of personal information we share), so too does the number of cyber-criminals hoping to access and use this information to their own benefit.

Keep your employees and network safe by raising awareness of the threat that hackers pose on social media, and arming them with the knowledge they need to spot hacking-attempts on their account(s).
