Programme overview

This e-learning course aims to encourage responsible behaviour when using digital technology and managing personal data. In today’s world, digital information is increasingly targeted by cyberattacks.

• There is a hacking attack every 39 seconds.
• The cost of data breaches is expected to increase to $2.1 trillion by 2020.
• Infringement of the European Union General Data Protection Regulation can result in administrative fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20m – whichever is greater.

Most of this can be avoided in a few simple steps. In seven short modules, participants will learn these steps, other good practices and safe online behaviour. This course is a fun learning experience, using gamification and storytelling, to make it accessible to everyone no matter what their level of knowledge in digital technologies.
