Becoming a victim of cybercrime is not a pleasant experience. Besides the potential financial damages, it feels like being robbed. Emotionally it is comparable to someone breaking into your house and touching all your personal belongings while searching for your valuables.
The potential losses can go far beyond ‘just’ financially. The emotional impact of for example losing all family pictures when coming a victim or ransomware is difficult to describe. The reputational damage of a data breach is at least as difficult to quantify.
It can happen to all of us, and statistics shows that it will eventually happen to all of us. Experts even suggests that it has already happened to all of us, and we are simply not aware of it. I too became a victim of cybercrime. Twice! Despite considering myself to be an expert for cybersecurity.
Those rather embarrassing and costly experiences, and the many lessons learned in 30 years as IT Executive and Consultant is where Cyber Security for Road Warriors (and Couch Potatoes) start.
Participants are taken on a journey towards becoming Cyber Resilient and learn a very important lesson: we can not completely prevent cybercrime, but we can avoid becoming an easy victim! To achieve that, we will have a closer look at our own mindset, and that of cybercriminals.
Objectives and Outcome:
This training is intended for companies and organizations with frequent (business) travelers, remote and home office workers.
After completing this training, the participants will have a better understanding of the risks and the ways in which cybercriminals work to exploit trust and vulnerabilities. Participants will also understand that cyber resilience depends on their capability to recognize threats and avoid risks. Participants receive a practical checklist and recommendations to continuously improve their cyber resilience.
About Dr. ir Johannes Drooghaag
Dr. ir Johannes Drooghaag, commonly known as JD, started his career in Applied Information Technology and quickly realized that the development and complexity of technology outpaces the development of our understanding of technology.
Working based on the principal that we don’t have to understand the bits and bytes to use technology, but we must understand how to use it optimal and secure, Johannes developed a wide range of consulting services, training programs, keynotes and workshops to allow people and organizations to do just that: embrace technology in the optimal and secure way. The Human Element in Cyber Security, The Human Element in Agile and Cyber Security for Road Warriors (and Couch Potatoes) are examples of these programs.
Working as consultant, trainer and speaker with clients and partners around the globe, the mission is crystal clear. Bridge the gap between what we do and what we know.
I am JD. I love what I do, and so will you!
