On 01 March 2022 we launched our second free webinar to explain online security to our freelance community.
It was a kind of highly interactive TV show, more than just a free training on SEO. It had memorable guests, polls, tips, tools, questions and – most importantly – answers.

The 3 rules of online security
The goal of this freelance free training was to make our participants confident enough to start with their own PASSWORD strategy.
However, online security is a rather complex discipline.
That’s why we opted for a pragmatic approach to those essential principles that explain what it means to be safe online.
So, let’s see what the 3 rules for online security are:
- Passwords are like underpants
You need to change them regularly, you need to keep them hidden, and you never share them with other people.
- You will always be the weak link
You shouldn’t trust unknow websites or providers, but you should not trust yourself too much either. Because it’s very likely that you will be the one, who provides identity thieves with the access to your online belonging. How? By not respecting the first rule, by losing your mobile device, or by clicking on the wrong link.
No reason to panic? Just keep yourself informed about how you can reduce these risks.
- You will always regret too late
When people regret not having a password manager or a back-up, it’s usually after they suffered a loss or a theft.
It can sound boring and complicated.
Which is why we decided to make things easier with our free webinar.
The PASSWORDS tools
One of the topics, to which our participants showed a lot of interest, has been a list of (possibly free) tools to get started with online security.
We promised that we would share the complete list of tools, which our super guests, Andrea Barracu and Pia Cherni, talked about.
And we, at Linkus, always keep our promises.
Our PASSWORDS tools list include platforms to check the security of your current passwords (such as Kaspersky) or even if your email has been exposed already .
But also applications like password managers, for any platform, like the open source Bitwarden, specific for Apple, like iCloud Keychain, or even to encrypt external hard disks.
However, we also had the chance to talk about multi-factor authentication (MFA), including voice and facial recognition, and the possible dangers (one question was: can one use a picture of me to authenticate? No worries, the answer of Andrea was a sound “noooo”).
The ONLINE SAFETY free training videos
Now, you will probably start to feel miserable for not participating in all this.
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
First, we have prepared video highlights of the event, so that you can get an idea of what you have missed, in less than 2 minutes.

Last but certainly not least, participants had the chance to test their newly acquired skills by answering three final questions.
Those who picked the right options, will receive a very exclusive Linkus certificate, which will definitely increase their chance to land a freelance assignment as cyber security experts. 🙂
