Panda Software Offers Users its ‘Basic Virus Course’

MADRID, September 29 2003 – One of the key points in any corporate security policy, and one which is often overlooked, is the need to train all network users in IT security.

No matter how advanced the antivirus protection systems installed, corporate security is at risk if users are ignorant about today’s viruses. For this reason, Panda Software has created and launched, for both business and home users, a ‘Basic virus course’, aimed at teaching users about viruses, their origins, their effects, means of transmission and how to protect against them.

This course has been designed for absolutely any user, whether they are computer experts or complete beginners. Throughout each of the twelve chapters of the course, users will be presented a series of animations and explanations, making the course entertaining as well as highly informative. The course also includes a series of exercises so that students can self check their understanding of the basic concepts of the course.

This latest initiative is very much in line with Panda Software’s principle objective of ridding the planet of viruses. With countless new viruses appearing everyday, users need to be fully aware of the risks and how to deal with them. In order to do so, it is necessary to know at least, the minimum security measures that should be taken, as well as being up-to-date on the latest developments. Users can learn all this, quickly and simply, with ‘Panda Software’s Basic Virus Course’.
