2014 has been an amazing year for the security awareness community. I feel organizations are truly making the fundamental shift from just compliance to changing human behavior. From working with hundreds of organizations, teaching multiple classes of SANS MGT433 and the first ever security awareness summit, I'm seeing both interest and investment in security awareness growing at a tremendous rate. In addition the market has matured to where there are numerous vendors innovating in amazing ways.
I feel like security awareness is where information security was in the early 2000's, when few people took security seriously, but you could see the tsunami coming. The human element is no different, we are just beginning to see this field grow, expect to see amazing things happen in our world in 2015. I know I'm excited!
