The Power of Innovative Awareness Training: Rebooting Cybersecurity
This talk addresses an innovative approach to information security awareness training to address an important area of information security program effectiveness that is often overlooked as important and of which standard approaches have grown stale.
Standard approaches include no training, onboarding only, or an annual powerpoint training that is forgotten as quickly as the user can click-click-click through. While already low on effectiveness, the messaging is corporate or compliance focused and misses the target of engaging the user.
End users behavior and awareness is a critical piece of protecting or maintaining resiliency for any organization size or industry. Therefore having effective awareness training has value.
I have tested and will share my 0-cost approach of weekly messaging that mixes multi-media formats with personal value cybersecurity guidance that both engages end users and delivers personally valuable guidance.
Additionally I will share the value this approach brings not just from an improvement in overall end user awareness, but in agility to address just-in-time topics or reinforce key areas.
