We know that when it comes to measuring and managing your human risk, it can be confusing where to start. Even if you have a Security Awareness program in place, how do you measure and communicate your program’s impact, benchmark your program against others and take your program to the next level?  The Security Awareness Planning Kit is made up of the top resources, templates and checklists from the SANS two-day MGT433 course.  The Planning Kit enables you to quickly build and / or improve your Security Awareness Program using resources developed and proven by the SANS Security Awareness Community.   Save time and be more successful, get the kit now.
