This new Computer-Based Training from SOCP provides maritime personnel with a comprehensive overview of the range of threats that information systems and devices are subject to, and the practices recommended to minimize those vulnerabilities. Best practices included in this training cover a wide range of topics, from maintaining security for corporate and government networks, to personal use of workplace computers, good password practices, and issues concerning the use of social media like Facebook and Twitter. This training also includes separate sections that address issues for mariners working aboard vessels operated or chartered by government agencies, such as specific log-in policies and rules surrounding working with classified information. The courses include a series of quiz questions to test the user’s understanding of the topics being covered, and a final assessment section. Students may print out a certificate that shows their pass/fail status for the CBT. For most users the course takes about a half-hour to complete.
