Course Overview

Identity theft is an increasing online threat, whereby criminals can steal your personal information to steal from you and others, as well as commit crimes in your name.

The thief only needs to know your name, date of birth and current/previous address to steal your identity and use it to commit fraud. The more information they obtain, the easier it is, and harder to come back from.

This course goes beyond our cyber security and information security training courses to identify specific identity theft threats, detection methods and appropriate responses.

This online training course is designed to raise awareness on the pitfalls of identity theft and its impact on employees in a professional and personal context.

It outlines the risks of identity theft and the consequences that result, along with a number of ways in which businesses can protect themselves.

The online training concludes with a quiz to check your understanding of identity theft and how you can protect yourself against it.

How does identity theft occur?
Identity theft occurs when someone steals or illegally obtains an individual’s personal data – this could include personal details, address, bank details and user logins. Some of the most common ways cybercriminals can get hold of an individual’s data include data breaches, data sold on the dark web, malware and phishing attacks.
How to reduce the risks of identity theft online?
Always protect your computer and devices including your smartphone with up-to-date security software. One of the most effective ways to protect yourself against identity theft is to use different and secure passwords on all your accounts. Most importantly, educate yourself on how phishing attacks occur and how to avoid falling victim.
What are the dangers of identity theft?
Identity theft could happen to anybody and leave an individual financially worse off. Apart from losing money through compromised bank details, individuals often become vulnerable to financial fraud through financial accounts and bank loans taken in their name. This could not only affect their credit rating adversely, but it can even get an individual wrongfully arrested for non-payment of dues.
