Designing the Path Forward: Security Awareness for the Indifferent Workforce presented at BSidesColumbus 2020

by Rose Songer,

Summary : An organization may have a robust Security Program, but all it takes is the click of a button by a user or divulging certain information on a cold call for an incident to occur and take the organization down. Reduction of incidents are possible with increased security awareness training for the workforce, but it takes a successful implementation of a Security Awareness Program, constant reinforcement, and a desire to learn from the workforce.This presentation will take a holistic view of a Security Awareness Program, in which we will lay out design plans for creating an effective cyber security awareness program resulting in the metrics to prove it.
