MGT433: SANS Security Awareness: How to Build, Maintain, and Measure a Mature Awareness Program

March 3 & 4, 2019 - RSA Conference, Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA

Organizations have invested a tremendous amount of money and resources into securing technology, but little if anything into securing their employees and staff. As a result, people, not technology, have become their weakest link in cybersecurity. The most effective way to secure the human element is to establish a high-impact security awareness program that goes beyond just compliance and changes behaviors. This intense two-day course will teach you the key concepts and skills needed to build, maintain and measure just such a program. All course content is based on lessons learned from hundreds of security awareness programs from around the world. You will learn not only from your instructor, but from extensive interaction with your peers, as well. Please bring example materials from your security awareness program that you can show and share with other students during the course.
