As awareness programs matures, organizations are asking what is next. How can we go beyond phishing, address multiple behaviors and begin to change culture? How can we scale our limited resources, reach different departments, roles or even different cultures or countries? We are seeing ambassador programs as one of the most effective ways organizations around the world are achieving this. Learn what an ambassador program is, how others are building and leveraging them, and actions you can take and apply to your own organization.
