Course level




Course Modules

There are two Beginner-level modules in the social media security course:

Social media has increasingly become essential for modern businesses, and is leveraged as a tool for building customer connections, research, and marketing. But its increased popularity has attracted cybercriminals looking for new opportunities to exploit businesses, creating increased social media-focused crime and resulting in data breaches and significant damage to business reputations around the world.

This course begins with modules looking at the security risks of social media for business users, best practices that should be implemented, and the potential consequences when security measures are insufficient.

At the end of each module, there will be a quiz to test your understanding. When the quiz is completed with a passing score, you will be able to download pass confirmation to demonstrate your knowledge of the topic.
