The 30-day security challenge was developed by Shannon Morse of Hak5 acclaim. It’s a comprehensive overview of basic cybersecurity hygiene for the average person. This class serves as a ‘support group’ for anyone that wants to take the security challenge. We have weekly touchpoints on Mondays and interactive walkthroughs on Saturdays.

The bulk of the session will be discussing issues that people experienced applying the principles from week three. We will also discuss the topics of this week’s challenges:

  • Pretty Good Privacy (PGP)
  • Spear-phishing
  • Social engineering concepts
  • Credit card security
  • Public databases, your privacy, and the law
  • Consumer devices and their radio frequencies
  • Browser and Operating System (OS) privacy settings on both Windows 10 and Mac OS X
  • 30-day Challenge wrap up and next steps
