CYBER AWARENESS CHALLENGE: Take the US DoD TEST!

“But it’s worse than that. This training is also bad security policy, since the most dangerous and effective counterintelligence or terrorist threats are unlikely to telegraph their views openly. Those who are on the lookout for outspoken critics of U.S. foreign policy based on this training are likely to miss them entirely.”

Some aspects of this training/test have been criticized. Let us first take the test which —  I believe — is a good ‘no-nonsense’ introduction to “Cyber Awareness”. Then, in a following post, we will discuss the controversy surrounding some topics, such as the identification of an ‘Insider Threat’.

You will be quizzed on the following topics:

Computer use – Identity Management – Email – Removable Media

Social Networking – Mobile Computing

Sensitive/Classified Information – Protecting Classified Data – Insider Threat

Website Use – Home Computer Use
