Online Safety Training

CAMOR's online safety course for sports professionals combines cyber security training with social media awareness training to educate athletes on the risks they potentially pose to themselves, as well as from external threat actors online. Those completing the training will understand how to think about what they post in a public forum and also how to protect themselves online from a range of threats. Sports professionals can pose a significant risk to themselves through poor online decision making, but are equally vulnerable of being targeted through social engineering, insider threats, trolling, online abuse, phishing attacks and honey traps from external threat actors.

Online security traps are becoming increasingly sophisticated and camouflage well in the digital landscape. High profile users are at higher risk of being targeted and will need to learn how to manoveur in these digital spaces, decoding both cyber and social engineering threats alongside adopting appropriate online behaviours.

This interactive course will provide learners with the tools to understand, identify, act and mitigate against online threats - raising fundamental awareness of the consequences that accompany these to both the individual and organisation.

Online Security Awareness

Channelling and developing our natural “gut instincts” can help develop our skills, knowledge and understanding of what constitutes a risk to our online safety or personal safety. Sports professionals are now facing the consequences of poor decision making and lifestyle choices. Do we ever stop to think of the consequences of what we post, share or respond to on Social Media or online? Decisions that we make now can have damaging effects on our present and future careers including:

  • Criminal prosecution
  • Targeted through online “Social Engineering”
  • Forced into doing something we don’t want to do
  • Reputational, financial, fanbase and operational damage to both athlete and organisation
  • Loss of sporting career opportunities
  • Psychological effects of negative publicity and damaged career
