Identity Theft (CS011)

Considering there’s over 7 billion people in the world, it’s pretty amazing that no 2 people have been found to have the same fingerprint. Even between identical twins! This just goes to show that our identities are completely and utterly unique.

Unfortunately, however, and even though we are unique, cybercriminals have found several ways to steal our information and commit identity theft. This is a major crime and can have serious, long-lasting effects on its victims. Consequences include financial, emotional, and physical stress.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Recognize the different types of identity theft and how they occur
• Understand the effects and know what to do if you are a victim
• Prevent and reduce the risk of your identity being stolen

Why take this course?
Identity theft is a preventable crime. Simple things like creating stronger passwords and not using public Wi-Fi to make bank transactions can significantly reduce the chances of becoming a target. This short course is suitable for everyone, particularly consumers, social media users, and professionals.
