The first episode of the Security Awareness Roundtable addressed the importance of defining security awareness the right way.
Joined by Justin Bovee and Steve Ellis, we presented the definition of security awareness, explored how it sets the stage for success and offered insights into using the definition to build an effective program.
We also talked about how this definition makes it possible to turn what is often considered a cost into an investment — while satisfying compliance issues and a sometimes sour attitude toward “security awareness training.”
We covered a lot of ground in a short period.

This is only the beginning.
