Much of the work or supervision of children who learn is based remotely on observing decent cybersecurity. The SANS Institute has kindly intervened to help you, with several free resources.
The SANS Security Awareness Work-from-Home deployment kit is a set of guides on how to raise awareness to secure a remote workforce – whether they are real children or staff members who need the same level of patience and explanations for working safely online. It covers what needs to be taught, the risks to focus on, the other departments to coordinate with, and the best advice for getting it right to make sure that advice stays true.
Naturally, the next concern is the safe use of instant messaging and video conferencing technologies – from Slack, Skype and Discord to GoToMeeting, Zoom and Webex. The only thing more overwhelming than choosing a platform is how to use it safely. What do your security teams need to teach staff? How do you manage technology and vulnerabilities that change every week? SANS instructor Lance Spitszner hosted a webcast to give you some tips on this.
For the more knowledgeable of information, SANS also runs NetWars – live interactive Capture-the-Flag events online – to complement the skills of cybersecurity workers in a community style.
Until May 31, 2020, NetWars offers a busy schedule, ranging from sword and witch roleplaying games inspired by Dungeons-and-Dragons in the form of cyber-mini-challenges to JSON data analysis, retro -Engineering and the SANS Cyber Fasttrack program for students.
In addition to all of this, SANS also wants everyone to get involved and use their wider community resources during this coronvirus lockout period. Live and archived webcasts, thousands of security white papers, newsletters, blogs, podcasts and even posters to stick on your new 9-5 desk in the attic are all available. There are tons of things to involve.
