MGT433: Securing The Human: Building and Deploying an Effective Security Awareness Program

A session at SANS London 2012

Sunday 2nd December, 2012

9:00am to 5:00pm (GMT)

Organizations have invested in information security for years now. Unfortunately, almost all of this effort has been focused on technology with little, if any, effort on the human factor. As a result, the human is now the weakest link. From RSA and Epsilon to Oak Ridge National Labs and Google, the simplest way for cyber attackers to bypass security is to target your employees. One of the most effective ways to secure the human is an active awareness and education program that goes beyond compliance and changes to behaviors. In this challenging course you will learn the key concepts and skills to plan, implement, and maintain an effective security awareness program that makes your organization both more secure and compliant. In addition, you will develop metrics to measure the impact of your program and demonstrate value. Finally, through a series of labs and exercises, you will develop your own project and execution plan, so you can immediately implement your customized awareness program upon returning to your organization.
