New Course: Personal Security Training

In Matthew 24 Jesus teaches that challenging and dangerous times will precede his return even to the point that, if he did not cut short those days, no one would survive (Matt 24:22).  Hardly a month passes without the expulsion, kidnapping, or targeted killing of individuals like you.

In this course you will learn principles and practices to help you reduce security risks and thrive in your service.  You will learn how to build habits to help you avoid security incidents as well as what you should and shouldn’t do in the midst of an incident.  Applying these simple principles could be the difference between life and death.

This course is intended to be a precursor to in-person security training courses that include stress-inoculation exercises.

The course is available to all our workers, as well as to those within our sphere of cooperation and partnership. If you have an associate or partner in service to whom you would like us to offer the course, please send us (GlobalSecureAdviser@gmail.com) their name and email address, and we’ll send out an invitation and link for them to participate.

Edit:  This course has been renamed “Personal Security Training.”  You can still find it in the same place on the OC Learning Center or use the links above.

Defeating Hackers and Snoops

The ease of using the internet for all our work and responsibilities like work, banking, socializing, sharing information, etc. has allowed many of us to become lethargic, apathetic, or ignorant when it comes to internet safety.  12.6 million Americans were hacked and had their personal information stolen last year.  Carelessness and/or ignorance can lead you to being one of those victims.

Check out the infographic below to understand why you need to be keenly aware of what you’re doing on the internet and how to protect yourself from hackers, snoops, and potential identity thieves.
