Genesee County Information Technology and the County Board of Commissioners, in partnership with Wizer, are pleased to provide free computer security awareness training to our citizens.

With today’s threat landscape, understanding how to use technology safely should be a top priority for everyone. This training is available for both kids and adults covering many topics in short 1 to 2-minute videos. Use these videos as a framework for family discussions on the appropriate use of technology and how to let someone know if something may not be appropriate. Please enjoy the video training and check back frequently as new content will be added over time.
