InfraGard announced the availability of free-online security awareness training at  The course is free; there is a fee of $24.95 for those who wish to take a certification exam.

It's great to see such a training resource available at no cost, since many employees can benefit from security awareness training, yet some companies have a hard time justifying paying it.

Going through some of the sessions, I found the delivery format clean, though not very exciting. That's perhaps my biggest concern about this course--individuals not motivated to learn its contents may have a hard time paying attention. (I wrote about the need to make awareness training exciting in an earlier diary.)

Yet, many of the lessons in the course contain information personally-relevant to the individuals taking the course, which is great to see. The Flash-based course consists of 13 lessons, covering topics such as:

    * Who commits cybercrime
    * Social engineering
    * Email use
    * Safe web use
    * Peventing identity theft

Congrats to the InfraGard team on having made this available, and thanks.
