Making It Stick: Secrets to Security Awareness


In this webinar, Erich Kron, Security Awareness Advocate with KnowBe4 explains best practices to help assess where you are today while laying out a plan to instill a culture of security awareness in your organization. We also discuss making it stick for the long term. In most cases, your employees are the weakest link in your cybersecurity chain and with all the upgrades to your technology, you need to consider upgrading your organization's employees' cybersecurity awareness. Teach them what to look for and how to report suspicious emails that sneak through spam filters and appear to be innocuous. Part of this culture of awareness is to understand how the hackers think and providing a simple way to report suspicious emails. Lastly, providing you a way to simulate a phishing attack helps easily train your group. You can programatically educate them and easily track your progress to maintain a high level of awareness. You can even make it a fun experience. In this webinar Erich and I touch on each of these aspects and help you understand how & where to start.
