Security Awareness Roundtable: How to Transform Security Awareness Month


October is declared “security awareness month.” For some, it’s a day, others a week. For many, it’s a concept that provides little benefit.

During the roundtable in July, we defined “security awareness” (recording at link) – an individual’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 don’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 isn’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 I’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
