This course does not have a final exam.
Description: The purpose of the Cyber Awareness Challenge is to influence behavior by focusing on actions that authorized users can engage to mitigate threats and vulnerabilities to DOD Information Systems. This training is current, engaging, and relevant to the user. The Cyber Awareness Challenge is the DOD baseline standard for end user awareness training by providing awareness content that addresses evolving requirements issued by Congress, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and Component input from the DOD CIO chaired Cyber Workforce Advisory Group (CWAG).
This course provides an overview of current cybersecurity threats and best practices to keep information and information systems secure at home and at work. The training also reinforces best practices to protect classified information, controlled unclassified information (CUI), and personally identifiable information (PII).
A Knowledge Check option is available for users who have successfully completed the previous version of the course. After each selection on the incident board, users are presented one or more questions derived from the previous Cyber Awareness Challenge. If all questions are answered correctly, users will skip to the end of the incident. If any questions are answered incorrectly, users must review and complete all activities contained within the incident.
