In this age of mobile and personal tech, most of us want to use our personal devices all the time — even at work. Fortunately, modern consumer tech is capable of the kinds of security we need in order to make that work.

This Security Awareness course for group practice/agency staff members will cover the essentials of how to manage personally-owned devices for use in the practice. After completing this course, learners may move on to their practice’s Device Security Center and begin securing and registering their personal devices.
