The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2020-06-10T21:45:26Z ESET Offers Free Cybersecurity Awareness Training for Business 2020-06-10T21:45:26Z eset-offers-free-cybersecurity-awareness-training-for-business Sydney, June 11, 2020 – ESET, a global leader in cybersecurity, has released a free online cybersecurity training tool for businesses. The site helps staff learn quickly and easily how to avoid the cybersecurity risks that arise, both in the office and when they’re working remotely. The training takes the form of 17 individual modules under the categories of email, internet safety, personalised threats, malware and passwords. Each module takes just a few minutes to view and users can view each module separately and stop and resume the training at any time. Some include interactive elements so users can test their understanding. Once a person has registered to receive the training they can share the link with their colleagues without further registrations being required. The training is suitable for business of all sizes. ESET Australia Country Manager Kelly Johnson says that poor cybersecurity awareness among users continues to be the main vector for attacks into both businesses and households alike, and the recent surge in staff working from home due to COVID-19 has only exacerbated the issue. “In any business there is a range of awareness of cybersecurity issues among staff. Even those who have good cybersecurity awareness can be caught off guard by a moment’s inattention or a particularly sophisticated phishing attack. The aim of the training  is to educate people on the methods malicious actors use and why they use them, so staff know what behaviours to avoid and what signs to look for that might indicate a threat. Combined with good Endpoint Protection software, on both PCs and devices, cybersecurity awareness training is a vital tool businesses can use to make their environment more secure.” “At ESET our mission is to enable everyone to enjoy the full potential of themselves and their technology in a secure digital world. We hope that this training will help people feel confident in their daily use of technology and give them the tools to recognise and avoid potential threats both in the workplace and at home,” says Johnson. <<Ends>> https://www.eset.com/au/business/cybersecurity-training/ Media Contacts: Kelly JohnsonCountry ManagerESET Software Australia+61 410 265 793 About ESET For more than 30 years, ESET® has been developing industry-leading IT security software and services for businesses and consumers worldwide.

ESET marks International Children’s Day with launch of Safer Kids Online resource site 2020-05-31T21:00:15Z eset-marks-international-children-s-day-with-launch-of-safer-kids-online-resource-site ESET marks International Children’s Day with launch of Safer Kids Online resource site  Sydney, June 1, 2020 – ESET, a global leader in cybersecurity, has chosen International Children’s Day to launch Safer Kids Online – a resource site dedicated to building a safer online environment for children. Including videos, articles and expert insight, the website offers resources for children, parents and schools with the aim to enable children to enjoy the full potential of the internet in a secure digital world. Every third person on the internet is a child, yet there can be significant dangers facing children when they surf the web. According to the eSafety Commissioner, one in five Australian kids are socially excluded, threatened or abused online while 90% of Australian kids and teens have had a negative online experience. Despite this high occurrence of negative experiences, recent research by the eSafety Commissioner found parents were unconfident about how to deal with their children’s negative experiences, with just 36% searching for or receiving online safety information and only 46% saying they knew where to go to get help in relation to their child’s online safety issues. ESET Australia Country Manager Kelly Johnson says, “Navigating the online world is tricky for both children and their parents. Parents who are fully confident to help their children with the day-to-day challenges of life can suddenly find themselves on unfamiliar ground when it comes to their childrens’ experiences online. At ESET, we’ve been helping families have safer online experiences for 30 years and the Safer Kids Online website brings this experience together with specialist input from child psychologists to create a go-to resource for families.” Resources for children, parents and teachers The Safer Kids Online website includes resources suitable for younger children, teenagers and their parents, developed in consultation with a child psychologist and ESET’s cybersecurity experts. The resources provide guidance and advice for children and adults around how to stay safe online geared around key monthly topics such as how to build your child’s awareness of the risks in posting online selfies, looking out for signs of cyberbullying and protecting children from online predators. Each of these monthly topics will include targeted resources for different ages such as:   ·       A video series for kids aimed at ages 8+ ·       Comics for older children aged 11+ ·       An in-depth explanation in the form of expert articles and vlogs for parents and schools   Monthly quizzes and prize contests will also be available in which children can win funny and educational tech gadgets.   The Safer Kids Online site will also provide advice on software, such as ESET Parental Control for Android, which allows parents to look after their children’s online well-being. ESET Parental Control includes the possibility of controlling inappropriate web content and managing the amount of time kids spend on certain devices, as well as the suitability of the applications they’re using. This allows parents to limit their child’s use of certain sites and receive reports on his or her online activities, hopefully becoming aware of any issues before they become entrenched. saferkidsonline.eset.com/au About ESET For more than 30 years, ESET® has been developing industry-leading IT security software and services for businesses and consumers worldwide.
