About this talk

More than 90% of security breaches involve human error. These acts are not always malicious, but often careless and preventable. To change security behavior effectively, employees must know what to do, care enough to improve, and then do what’s right when it matters.   An effective – and we stress effective – security awareness program is proven to change organizational behavior and lower risk. Join Michael Osterman, President, Osterman Research Inc. and Michael Madon, SVP & GM, Mimecast Security Awareness Products to learn more about the state of the industry and best practices for implementing an effective security awareness training program to change employee behavior and make your company more secure.   SPEAKER BIOS: Michael D.
