+ Description
 

This course focuses on Internet-accessible systems or "Internet of Things" (IoT). Each of these systems and devices can be targeted by threat actors and used to conduct malicious activity if they are unsecured, or worse, these systems can leave vulnerabilities and sensitive information open to exploitation if not properly configured and maintained. This course explains the vulnerabilities of internet-accessible systems and how to prepare for, mitigate, and respond to a potential attack. This course provides key knowledge to inform organizational awareness of internet-accessible system attacks as well as best practices that minimize the likelihood of a successful attack and enable effective response and recovery if an attack occurs.

This webinar is accessible to non-technical learners including managers and business leaders and offers an organizational perspective useful to technical specialists.

Learning Objectives
Enable learners to better defend their internet-accessible systems through awareness of common vulnerabilities, best practices, CISA guidance, and resources:

  • Define Internet-Accessible Systems and common vulnerabilities
  • Explain cyber hygiene best practices that prevent attacks.
  • Understand the impacts of real-life cyberattacks and what an effective organizational response looks like.
  • Learn steps to identify, mitigate, and recover from Internet-Accessible System attacks.

Understanding DNS Attacks 1 HoursSkill Level: Beginner     
+ Description
 

The Domain Name System, commonly known as DNS, is often referred to as the "phone book" of the Internet. Every time we access the Internet to visit our favorite websites, shop and pay bills online, or access online portals for healthcare or banking, we depend on DNS infrastructure to securely route us to our intended destinations. While this shared infrastructure is incredibly powerful and useful, it also presents a rich attack surface for threat actors: allowing them to shut down websites and online services, replace legitimate website content with threats and extortion attempts, or even route traffic to a carbon copy of a legitimate website to steal any information entered by users intending to conduct business as usual. "Understanding DNS Attacks" provides key information you need to know to protect yourself and your organization from DNS infrastructure tampering including common vulnerabilities, how to identify a potential attack, and guidance and best practices to mitigate the likelihood and impact of a successful DNS attack.

This webinar is accessible to non-technical learners including managers and business leaders, and offers an organizational perspective useful to technical specialists.

Learning Objectives:
Enable learners to prevent, flag, and protect themselves and their organizations from DNS infrastructure attacks through awareness of common attack schemes, best practices, CISA guidance, and resources.

  • Define DNS Tampering and explain common attack methods
  • Identify signs of a DNS attack
  • Learn mitigation steps for DNS attacks
  • Understand the process to recover from a DNS attack
  • Explore impacts of DNS attacks through case studies

Understanding Web and Email Server Security 1 HoursSkill Level: Beginner    
+ Description
 

Web and email servers are the workhorses of the Internet: we couldn't run government, businesses, or our personal lives without them! However, the information exchanged through web and email servers can offer a tempting target for cyber attackers. Participants can request 1 CPE credit for completing this course.

This webinar includes the following information and more:

  • Attack methods: Hackers can target and decode victims' web and email traffic, compromise email security to make phishing attempts more likely to succeed, or can even use botnets to shut down access to websites and conduct large-scale campaigns of malicious activity.
  • Key Guidance for Organizations: CISA provides resources and best practices to help individuals and organizations secure their web and email infrastructure.
  • Case studies: Explore the methods and impacts of real-life cyberattacks, and how the victims responded and recovered.
  • Incident Response overview: Key steps to identify a potential attack, mitigate damage through proper preparation and response, and recover after an attack occurs.

Learning Objectives:
Enable learners to prevent, flag, and protect themselves and their organizations from web and email server cyberattacks through awareness of common attack schemes, best practices, CISA guidance, and resources.

  • Define web and email server infrastructure, and explain common attack methods
  • Identify signs of a potential attack
  • Learn mitigation steps for web and email server attacks
  • Understand the process to recover from a web or email server attack
  • Explore impacts of web and email server attacks through case studies
