The Computer Science Education Department in collaboration with the EC-Council once again held a free Certified Secure Computer User (CSCU) certification for all students of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences Education, Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia (FPMIPA UPI).
The CSCU training program aims to equip individuals with the necessary knowledge and skills to protect their information assets. This training will immerse students in an interactive environment where they will gain a fundamental understanding of various computer and network security threats such as identity theft, credit card fraud, online banking phishing scams, viruses and back doors, fake emails, and sexually lurking sex offenders. online, loss of confidential information, hacking attacks, and social engineering. More importantly, the skills learned from the classroom help students take the necessary steps to reduce their safety exposure. (https://www.htp.co.id/kursus/netsec/eccl/cscu/).
This program was carried out online for 3 days, from 11 January 2023 to 13 January 2023. This year CSCU invited five presenters, namely lecturers at FPMIPA who are experts in the field of Secure Computer and attended by undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students within FPMIPA UPI.
