Among the newer forms of security for most workers in the 21 st century involves social engineering-protecting workers and work against subtle but dangerous attacks by con men and scammers. This 14-video course reviews security fundamentals and the many ways in which devious people steal information-masquerading as delivery men, entering unauthorized areas without badges, shoulder surfing (airports, coffee shops), spoofing, dumpster-diving, and insidiously clever "spear phishing" attacks-legitimate-looking e-mails luring workers to malicious websites, or worse, into opening "encrypted" attachments with company credentials or password. Review critical measures of Active Directory administration, user management, and encryption of files and disks; implement logon time restrictions and failed-attempt lockouts; disable guest accounts in a timely fashion; avoid use of noncompliant systems; prevent careless moving or copying of office files; encrypt files and disks. In this day of widespread remote teleworking, safeguard home offices-where wireless signals are easily intercepted without simple, appropriate precautions. Danger lurks everywhere, and no one, however experienced, can ever be too careful! Course helps prepare for CompTIA+ certification exam 220-1002
