October is declared â€œsecurity awareness month.â€ For some, itâ€™s a day, others a week. For many, itâ€™s a concept that provides little benefit.
During the roundtable in July, we defined â€œsecurity awarenessâ€ (recording at link) â€“ an individualâ€™s realization of the consequences of their actions with the ability to assess intention and impact.
So does emphasizing security awareness for a day/week/month make a difference?
Join us on Wednesday, September 21, 2011 at 11am Pacific, 2pm Eastern to find out which members of our panel donâ€™t see the value (and why).
Then stick around to find out why I now have a different opinion: I see this as an opportunity to turn a lackluster event into a transformed security awareness program.
Join our roundtable and engage with us to find out how to:
- Get buy-in for an event
- Structure an event to solve a single problem (and some suggestions on the problems to solve)
- Set the stage for and define success: why this isnâ€™t a diet, but a lifestyle change
- Determine what elements to include, what elements to skip
- Measure the results to build an effective business case
Get engaged with security awareness
Each month Iâ€™ll invite select experts with hands-on experience with security awareness to the roundtable for our discussion. Designed to be more interactive than podcasting, here are some ways to get involved:
- Ask questions in advance
- Participate during the process on the event page or using twitter
- Make comments
- Follow-up with questions and comments after
