DOD-US1364-20 Department of Defense (DoD) Cyber Awareness Challenge 2020 (1 hr)

This annual 2020 Cyber Awareness Challenge refresh includes updates to case studies, new information on the Cyberspace Protection Condition (CPCON) (formerly INFOCON), a feature allowing the course tutorial to be skipped, a combining of the DoD and Intelligence Community (IC) lessons into one course versus two, and a revised question pool to support the Knowledge Check option. The course provides an overview of cybersecurity threats and best practices to keep information and information systems secure. Every year, authorized users of the DoD information systems must complete the Cyber Awareness Challenge to maintain awareness of, and stay up-to-date on new cybersecurity threats. The training also reinforces best practices to keep the DoD and personal information and information systems secure, and stay abreast of changes in DoD cybersecurity policies. Other agencies may use the course to satisfy their requirements as well. There is also a Knowledge Check option available within the course for individuals who have successfully completed the previous version of the course. A random selection of Knowledge Check questions derived from the previous version are presented at the beginning of each lesson. Answering these questions correctly results in the ability to bypass a particular lesson. Instructions for this option are included within the course.
