The Internet and computers are becoming increasingly important in our everyday lives. We use computers at work and at home and our smart phones and tablets while we are on the go. We purchase goods, communicate with friends and family, do our banking and plan our travel with computers and mobile devices. All this is done with a certain amount of trust, and little, if any, consideration of the threats that exist. In this webinar, you will examine the threats to your identity, your devices and your data. These threats include social engineering attacks, malicious software, eavesdropping, and physical threats to your security such as fires, disaster and theft. You will explore how you are vulnerable to these attacks and develop good practices and defenses to protect against them.

This webinar is the third in a series of eight webinars discussing the fundamentals of cybersecurity (Cybersecurity 101).

Training magazine’s 38th annual conference is designed for training and development, learning and performance professionals. Excelsior will offer two presentations at the event.

Presentation 1

Presenter: Tina Grant, Executive Director, Center for the Assessment of Post-Traditional Instruction, Training and Learning (CAPITAL)

Title: Beyond Tuition Reimbursement: Moving toward an Educated Workforce

Learn how to maximize value and ROI for your training programs and save employees time and cost to credential or degree by having your training programs evaluated for academic credit. This workshop will take you through the process, help you weigh your options, and introduce ways you can work with institutions to tailor certificate and degree programs that will allow you to create partnerships that maximize your tuition assistance and training dollars.

Presentation 2

Presenter: Lisa LaVigna, Executive Director of Outreach & Access

Title: Courageous Learning

Description: Come explore the world of the post traditional learner through a documentary which addresses the more than 93 million Americans in the workforce without a degree. These Americans face a falling standard of living and an increasing earnings gap while corporations find a lack of skilled employees to fill workforce needs. Courageous Learning follows the lives of three adult students: Shawn, Joe and Angeline – a veteran, dad and nurse – and the obstacles they face in pursuit of a higher education. Experts, including leaders in academia, think tanks, government and industry provide a guide to the landscape of post secondary education today. Following this short video we will discuss how and what we as training leaders can do to create more accessible paths for these employees, giving our organizations access to a skilled workforce.
