Over and over, the media headlines “Hacking,” but poor employee email practices create the risk. In a recent story on hacking of nuclear facilities, The New York Times reported:
“Hackers wrote highly targeted email messages containing fake résumés for control engineering jobs and sent them to the senior industrial control engineers who maintain broad access to critical industrial control systems, the government report said. The fake résumés were Microsoft Word documents that were laced with malicious code. Once the recipients clicked on those documents, attackers could steal their credentials and proceed to other machines on a network.”
Protect yourself from risks like these by following the 10 Rules of Email Privacy. Everyone should take the FREE Email Privacy Course.
The Email Privacy Course is offered free of charge to all email users looking to protect themselves against threats to the privacy and security of their information and electronic correspondence. The course was developed based on privacy attorney Bruce Carlson’s “10 Rules of Email Privacy” and is available at https://lumious.com/courseware/email_privacy_tips. Trainees who successfully complete the course are awarded an Email Privacy Training Certificate.
The course is open and free to all who access the link. Registration is required, but Lumious will not contact trainees or share trainee information with third parties.
Lumious, LLC will analyze course usage with the intent of issuing a report on the state of email privacy and email privacy education in the third quarter of this year.
