Videos are a great way to learn about cyber security. We’ve selected some of our favourite bite-sized videos (under five minutes). Why not share these with staff as part of their cyber security training?

 

Ransomware

How would your business handle hackers taking all your computers offline at the same time? This video from the BBC talks about the effect on an aluminium producer in Norway.  Although it’s a large international business, there are some learning points for every organisation.

 

Hackers

We all have a stereotypical image of a hacker. This video from Cisco challenges you to think about hackers in a new light. It also highlights how easy it is to fall for a scam at work and illustrates how devastating the consequences can be.

 

The Met Police’s videos

These short cartoons (under three minutes long) cover a variety of topics including phishing, payment fraud, updates and Wifi. You can also download an audiobook and PDFs.
