Protection from doxing, a new free course from Kaspersky Education

Hello, fellow students!

We invite you to enroll in our new course about the dangers and prevention of doxing, the practice of making one’s personal information public without one’s consent.

Most people post a lot of information about themselves and others on the Internet, sometimes without thinking about the potential consequences. Moreover, many are unaware of how much they really share online. We developed this new course to help everyone learn more about staying safe online while expressing themselves in the digital world.

In this course you will learn more about what doxing is and who its likely victims are. You’ll get answers to common questions such as “Is it OK to post party photos on Facebook?” and “How did my online friends find out my home address if I never posted it?” You will also learn how to protect yourself and others from doxing, how to deal with online shaming, and how to share information ethically and responsibly, without unwanted consequences.

Upon finishing this free course, you’ll also receive a shiny certificate of completion — and have the knowledge to decide wisely whether to post it on your social channels.

We hope you’ll enjoy the Doxing: Dangers & Prevention course!
