Expert Insights: The 2020 State of Privacy and Security Awareness Report

“Knowledge is power” has stuck around as a popular aphorism for a reason. Put simply, it’s true.

As a training and awareness manager, knowledge of both what your employees know and don’t know is vital for you to do your job. Such knowledge can be used to inform what topics to train on and how a training and awareness initiative should be deployed.

That’s why MediaPRO commissioned the 2020 State of Privacy and Security Awareness Report to gauge the average U.S. employee’s knowledge of common cybersecurity and data privacy best practices. In partnership with Osterman Research, we surveyed just more than 1,000 employees in the U.S. to find out what they know about phishing, social, engineering, malware, privacy regulations, and more.

Join MediaPRO Chief Learning Officer Tom Pendergast and Osterman Research President Michael Osterman as they discuss the findings of this original research.

  • Building a Privacy Culture in a Conflicted Age Jul 14 2020 5:00 pm UTC 62 mins
    Tom Pendergast and Dave Cohen
    We often hear of the importance of building a privacy-aware culture at your company, but how often do we consider how daunting that task can be? After all, these employees who you are supposed to meld into privacy-protecting champions show up at your workplace carrying with them a web of assumptions about data protection over which you have no control. Your employee population is sure to include apathetic or cynical people who believe privacy is already lost, people fatigued by endless privacy notices, coupled with an ever-evolving regulatory landscape. They all participate in a culture that is deeply conflicted about protecting data.

    While you can’t control the beliefs your employees bring to work, there is still much you can control in your environment, and we’ll discuss both the challenges that you can’t control and the precise points where you can exercise control over the way your organization approaches data protection. We’ll present a model for thinking about building a privacy culture via a training and awareness program, and we will focus on the different actions and attitudes needed to succeed at building such a program.

    Topics will include:
    - The conflicted nature of popular perceptions about privacy, including new wrinkles introduced by the pandemic.
    - A model for thinking about your influence on company culture that focuses on what you can and can’t control.
    - Tactical and mental tips for approaching training and reinforcement that give you leverage in communicating with employees.
    - Strategies for finding allies across your business, including at the executive level.

    You’ll walk away with a useful mental model to think about how to influence your culture, as well as practical tips for finding success at various levels of influence.
  • Privacy Culture for GDPR, CCPA & Beyond Recorded: Jun 18 2020 32 mins
    Tom Pendergast
    Privacy laws and regulations are coming thick and fast, and we’re not done yet. In order for employees to operate effectively in the new business environment created by these regulations, you as a privacy professional need to do more than create policies and processes to comply with regulations—you also need to create a culture around data protection in your organization. It won’t be done with training alone; you’ll need to align executive messaging, training, and ongoing communication around the knowledge and behaviors your employees must master to perform in the new world of privacy. This fast-paced talk explores some key best practices around aligning your culture with privacy laws and changing the mental models of your employees.
  • What Do Shirtless Men Have to Do with Security Awareness? Part 1 Recorded: May 28 2020 35 mins
    Lisa Plaggemier, Chief Strategist, MediaPRO
    There is an art to using the unexpected to get people’s attention. It’s the quirky, intriguing thing that fires the made-you-look response. Our brains are constantly searching for stimulation – we actually crave the unexpected and search out novelty. We don’t ask “what’s old?” we ask, “what’s new?”

    Security and privacy training and awareness managers can use this to their advantage. In this webinar, we’ll look at how an infamous and award-winning advertising campaign used the unexpected to drive 5.9 million YouTube in one day! We’ll explore the techniques we can borrow from that ad campaign to get more eyeballs on our awareness content, increase engagement, and ultimately influence behavior change.

    In Part 1 of a two-webinar series, MediaPRO Chief Strategist (and recovering marketer) Lisa Plaggemier shows us what we can learn from the field of marketing to improve our training and awareness programs.

    - How are brains our hard-wired to look for novelty
    - The importance of “the hook” in messaging meant to influence behavior
    - Why eye-catching visuals are not just for billboards and viral videos
    - How what’s worked for the most successful ad campaigns can work for you
  • Privacy in the Time of COVID Recorded: May 22 2020 58 mins
    Chenxi Wang | Vishwanath Raman | Michelle Dennedy | Tom Pendergast
    In the fight against COVID-19, countries are taking urgent actions to address the crisis. Some are turning to tech to find solutions for containing the spread of the virus. Digital contact tracing, in particular, is gaining a lot of traction. For example, Apple and Google recently announced a rare collaboration to jointly facilitate contact tracing within their mobile platforms for public health monitoring applications.
    So, what does this mean for privacy? 
    While some efforts are being made to preserve user privacy, like not tracking user location or collecting other identifying information, digital contact tracing can still reveal more user information than necessary.

    Join this panel of security and privacy experts lead by Chenxi Wang to learn more about the different implications associated with digital contact tracing, how it is being used around the world, and the long-term effects of COVID-rushed decisions.

    Speakers:
    - Chenxi Wang, Founder & General Partner of Rain Capital
    - Vishwanath Raman, Lead, Privacy Technologies, Oasis Labs
    - Michelle Dennedy, CEO Drumwave
