3 What do you do now?

As we approach the end of the course, it’s a good opportunity to reflect on what you have learned and how it has impacted your ability to protect your digital life.

At the beginning of the course, you took a survey on your information security practices. We’d like you to retake it now to see how your practices have changed.

Launch the survey [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] – answer the questions based on your habits now. There are no right or wrong answers so you should choose the answer that most closely matches the way you use your computer now that you’ve completed the course. Don’t worry, all the data is anonymous and we will not reveal individual answers.

When you’ve finished you can compare your answers with those you gave at the start of the course.

When this course was originally run, the results were collated by the author of the course, Arosha, in his blog. You might want to take a look at those results.
