About this product

Course code QAPYOFVBL

This course is designed to show delegates how easy it can be for others to obtain data about ourselves through various means, but also how much of this can be stopped with a few tweaks to our machines and our online behaviour. The course is divided into three key sections - an introduction and two main topic sections, Personal Data and Computer data.

If a stranger came up to you on the street, would you give them your name, National Insurance Number, e-mail address, date of birth or other such information? Probably not!

Yet people give out this sort of personal information on the Internet every single day, often without a second thought about what happens to it once the send or post button has been pressed. Even when we do not give out this information freely, it has become increasingly easy to collate snippets of data, and to then deduce personal information.

In some cases, the personal comments we make online can affect the work systems we use. Careless talk on social sites and forums can allow hackers to leverage their way into our corporate systems.

Target Audience

This course is aimed at anyone who wishes to learn about protecting themselves when using the Internet and the World Wide Web.


No pre-requisites are expected other than a familiarity with Windows and browser technologies.


  • At the conclusion of this course, delegates will be able to describe some of the ways in which their personal data can be inadvertently exposed to others whilst online and understand how this can be controlled or stopped.
  • Delegates will understand the importance of being vigilant with their data and how to avoid some of the tricks that fraudsters might employ to elicit our data through social engineering.
  • Delegates will also look at the ways our machines can expose our data and learn how to correctly configure tools that will help control the amount of information our machines emit.
