“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.”

A new unclassified version (2018) of a computer-based cyber-security training course from the Pentagon is available online. Follow us on Twitter: @Intel_Today
Version 4.0 of a computer-based cyber-security training course from the Pentagon is no longer available online and has been updated to Version 2018.
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
Enjoy the test and don’t hesitate to post comments and feedback!
