Kaspersky Lab

Avoid being a victim of online fraud and win with Kaspersky Lab!

I use online banking and payments every day. Think about how often you shop online, make donations or just EFT cash. How aware are you about the potential threats out there though? Do you even think twice about shopping online and the possibility of falling victim to online fraud.

That’s why the new Kaspersky Lab interactive project called the one dollar lesson is rather rad. It runs you through the common online banking threats that can occur while shopping online, which shows us how to protect our money in each instance.

Knowledge is power!

Kaspersky Lab

This interactive web-project offers three training modules aimed to educate you. Each follows the virtual journey of a one dollar payment as it travels through the endless online space towards its destination, a bank server, facing obstacles such as phishing, Trojans and man-in-the-middle attacks, among others. The threats are illustrated vividly to you, to help you understand what these are, but then in each module, so are the “heroes” that can help the dollar to reach its destination safely.

Kaspersky Lab is offering two lucky Tech Girl readers the chance to win a 1 year Kaspersky Total Security — multi-device box product, valued at R599.99, for taking part in the One Dollar lesson campaign and competition. Kaspersky Total Security – multi-device delivers ultimate security for computers and mobiles phones, protecting your privacy, finances, identity, photos, files and your children – on your PC, Mac and Android devices – and is the perfect solution to avoid being a victim of online fraud!
