End User Cyber Fundamentals Video

End User Cyber Fundamentals

This online video teaches about end-user security risks related to everyday online activities such as using email, social media, storing data on public cloud, and using IoT devices.

The video analyses the security and privacy risks end-users should know to recognise threats like online scams, typosquatting, spoofed websites, and others to keep themselves and their organisations safe.

End-User awareness training is a priority for any organisation and company regardless of its size. It helps the employee to understand the existing security risks and concerns and it cultivates a proactive behaviour to detect and prevent attacks before they happen. Humans are the “weakest link” in the cyber chain, so attackers can prey on the flaws of human nature to target an organisation/system.

Security infrastructure can be high-end, yet a simple click on a link sent in an email can cause a breach of millions of pounds. Therefore, end-user awareness training is one of the most important steps for successful system implementation.

Awareness training helps management as well as employees of an organisation to understand the security risks in the information system, to recognise the threats, and to learn how to properly respond to them.

It covers different topics related to end-user cyber fundamentals. You will learn best practices on how to navigate the Internet in a secure manner for safe internet browsing, social media use, public cloud storage risks, and IoT Internet of Things security concerns.

End-user awareness training should be performed regularly in every company to include the employees in the security program of the organisation to mitigate threats, attacks, and breaches of valuable company data and assets.

The First 2 Hours: Make Better Use of Your Most Valuable Time
Are you drowning in email?
Overloaded with calendar invitations?
Frustrated by wasteful meetings and an ever-growing workload?

 

Then you know that being busy does not mean being productive. Most workers are being asked to take on more responsibilities with less support, advised to simply ‘be innovative.’ But you only have a finite amount of energy and thinking capacity available to you in a day. Most of us are wasting it on things that aren’t contributing to our most important work: the activities that require problem solving, decision making and critical thinking.

Developed for business professionals, The First Two Hours teaches you how to design your day, rather than be at the mercy of it. Using research on neuroscience, energy flow and the body’s natural rhythms, it divides the workday into manageable blocks and helps you determine when you are most resourceful, and therefore when you should complete your most demanding tasks.

  • Optimise your day in blocks of two hours
  • Take back control of your work life by creating a workflow designed for you
  • Do your most important work at the right time of day so it gets the resources it deserves
  • Decide when you need to be ’on’ and when you can be ’available’ so you can maximise productivity

In a time of near-constant information overload, this practical handbook helps you focus on getting done what you need to get done, when you are best able to do it. By learning to invest your energy strategically, you can be in the driver’s seat every work day and achieve a level of productivity beyond what you thought possible.

Effective Communication for Project Managers

Effective Communication is vital for Project Management

effective communication is vital as a Project Manager - learn how

One of the most important strengths of a Project Manager is effective communication. Not just verbally but also written. If someone does not communicate well verbally, there is a strong chance that their written form (i.e. project reports) will not be clear and concise either. 

In communicating, it’s crucial to understand your personality so that you balance your preferences with the wants of those you come across who may be a different personality type.

The four Personality types of this day and age are:

  • Melancholy – analytic
  • Choleric – likes to be in charge
  • Phlegmatic – nurturer
  • Sanguine – wants to have fun

This eBook goes into the more important details about these four personality types. Each personality has its strengths and failings. Each one of us is a combination of all the four personalities, but we all have a dominant personality type.

It is a good idea to look at your communication manner in your personal life, business communication, and network marketing life and ask, “What is in it for each of the different personalities?”

Learn how to create compelling communication techniques by understanding personality types and how they operate. 

Your project team and Stakeholders will thank you for it.

3 tips to avoid working from home burnout

3 ways to avoid burnout when working from home

3 tips to avoid burnout when working from home

During 2019, working from home started to become available for office workers on an ad-hoc basis. As 2020 broke and the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world, hard, this changed overnight.

Millions of employees around the world have had to make a sudden and unprecedented shift to remote work. Many find themselves feeling like they need to work all the time to signal their devotion and productivity. This results in some people struggling to create healthy work/home boundaries.

Even more than before, afternoons will blend with evenings, and weekdays will combine with weekend days, leaving a sense of limited time off.

This quickly leads to burnout when working from home. Worst of all it can make you feel that it is never ending, which makes the whole situation feel worse.

So, how can we “leave our work at the door” if we are no longer going out the door?

Research shows it will be necessary to:

  1. maintain physical and social boundaries
  2. preserve limits on how you use your time
  3. focus on your most important work

This simple guide gives advice on how you can “leave your work at the WFH door”
