Tuesday, March 28 | 3:00PM–3:50PM | Room 553
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Standard Presentation
Required security training often covers state, federal, and financial regulations and practices that can be difficult to present in an exciting and retentive way. Using the gameshow formats for popular TV contests, this session will demonstrate how to provide important security concepts and information in an engaging forum for a wide variety of campus constituents. Participants will learn how to filter and organize the information to be imparted and present facts and otherwise dry material in a memorable event. Ultimately, attendees will be invited to participate in an actual security gameshow.

Outcomes: Develop a more effective security awareness program that can be used for a variety of campus constituents * Learn how to present security awareness information in a way that can be retained more effectively * Organize and define the most important information that needs to be imparted in a security awareness training program
