    What does the “s” in https:// of a URL stand for?

    • A.

      (A) Spanish

    • B.

      (B) Screenshot

    • C.

    Correct Answer
    C. (C) Secure
    Explanation
    The "s" in "https://" stands for "secure". When "https" is used in a URL, it indicates that the website is using a secure communication protocol called HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure). This protocol ensures that the data transmitted between the user's browser and the website is encrypted and cannot be easily intercepted or tampered with by malicious actors. The use of HTTPS is particularly important for websites that handle sensitive information, such as login credentials or financial transactions, as it helps protect the privacy and security of users.

    If you receive an urgent request by email from your Director that seems unusual you should:

    • A.

      (A) Process it

    • B.

      (B) Reply to the email to confirm

    • C.

      (C) Call them to confirm

    Correct Answer
    C. (C) Call them to confirm
    Explanation
    When receiving an urgent request by email from your Director that seems unusual, it is important to take caution. Email communication can be easily manipulated, and it is difficult to verify the authenticity of the request solely through email. Therefore, it is recommended to call the Director directly to confirm the request. This allows for a more secure and reliable form of communication, ensuring that the request is legitimate and preventing any potential risks or misunderstandings.

    The only department that can be affected by CEO Spoofing is Finance/Accounting.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    CEO spoofing is a form of cybercrime where hackers impersonate a CEO or other high-ranking executive to deceive employees into divulging sensitive information or making fraudulent transactions. While finance and accounting departments may be more susceptible to these attacks due to their involvement with financial transactions and sensitive data, other departments can also be affected. For example, HR departments may be targeted for employee data or payroll information. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that only the finance/accounting department can be affected by CEO spoofing.

    Explanation
    It is not recommended to give your password to a colleague, even if they have forgotten theirs. Sharing passwords can compromise the security of your account and the organization's data. Each individual should have their own unique password for security purposes. It is advisable to encourage your colleague to follow proper password recovery procedures or seek assistance from the IT department to reset their password.
