Phishing and credential theft continue to top the list of attack methods identified in data breaches, as these user-focused attacks continue to produce results. To reduce the risk of these attacks, organizations have developed security training programs that teach users how to recognize and avoid the traps set in phishing and physical access-based attacks. Tools and resources to help you build and evolve these programs are plentiful, but deciding which specific strategies will resonate with your users is a challenge. How you teach, track, and communicate in these programs can make the difference between an effective training your users will talk about in their daily operations, and a box-checking boondoggle they begrudge having to sit through. Join this webinar with SANS Analyst Dave Shackleford and Zoe Lindsey, Security Strategist at Duo Security, for a discussion on security strategy that puts people first and keeps your users safer, inside and outside the office.
