The Case for Security Awareness Training

Presented by

Stu Sjouwerman, Founder and CEO of KnowBe4

About this talk

Ask a security expert what the most vulnerable cog in the security wheel is and they will tell you it is the user. A company with the most detailed policies and procedures and best-in-class security hardware and software is still vulnerable if a user decides to take an action potentially compromises data, such as copying a confidential file to a thumb drive to work on it at home, opening a spearphishing email and clicking on the attachment, or deciding to check out their favorite YouTube channel from a workstation attached to the corporate network. This 20/20 webcast looks at necessity for on-going security awareness training, how it can be incorporated into the workday, and the kinds of user activities that can be changed through such training.
