SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Prilock Security, an innovator in online security awareness training, announced today the immediate availability of its game-changing, Internet-based security awareness program to consumers. While identity protection companies are a good defense strategy, they only notify people after an event has occurred and can’t monitor all financial accounts. Firewalls and antivirus programs are easily bypassed as evidenced by the flurry of successful attacks. Prilock shows people how to use the Internet, email, and social media safely - greatly reducing their visibility and vulnerability to identity theft and other malicious attacks.
Every day, the average person unintentionally leaves a trail of logins, passwords, Instagram and Facebook posts, tweets, texts, and blog comments across the Internet that all lead directly back to them. Searching the Internet for work or leisure, banking online or even sending emails to friends or colleagues is enough to expose individuals and businesses to catastrophic consequences.
“Prilock shows how the attacks are built and the psychology used to trick and con user’s everyday…Without the Tech Talk,” said Dan Hirning, CEO of Prilock. “Once you’ve seen an attack assembled - you know how to spot them, now and in the future. This is the most effective way for users to protect themselves from hacker’s tricks, phishing scams, social engineering, and online predators. Prilock users also receive the latest scam and new attack alerts as discovered.”
Prilock’s online security awareness is designed for all user experience levels from beginning to expert. The one-hour interactive briefing is perfect for anyone who uses a smartphone, laptop, or public Wi-Fi. Users learn how cybercrime works and why everyone is a target. The easy-to-follow lessons are reinforced with Prilock’s Hacker Challenge game, where a hacker attempts to steal users ID, cash, and retirement accounts. Prilock offers Gift Cards allowing people to send them to friends, clients, or loved ones to help secure their online activities from hacker’s tricks.
For a limited time, Prilock is offering 50% off its 1-year security awareness training. For more information visit. www.prilock.com
