After working with over 1,000 organizations on building, maintaining and measuring their awareness program, we have found a common theme. Soft skills, or more specifically the lack of soft skills, are often a key reason why awareness programs struggle to have an impact. These findings are reinforced by data from the annual Security Awareness Report. In this webcast we cover how organizations can address these issues by focusing on the 3 Cs of awareness: Communications, Collaboration and Culture. We will explain what each of these three elements are and how organizations can make the most of them.
