Developing a Full-Spectrum Security Training Program

Tuesday, May 05 | 10:15AM–11:15AM | Conrad C, Second Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
After encountering resistance from executives to a single-pronged approach, WSU is implementing a three-way security training program for all executives and those with access to sensitive university data. Instead of a one-size-fits-all solution we are using a combination of a "placement/certificate" test, a full-length video program (purchased from a third party), and live lectures by a security team. Participants can choose either online or live training sessions and may "test out" either by successfully completing an online examination. The three-way approach answers several complaints about simpler programs.

OUTCOMES: Explore obstacles to successful security training programs * Learn how to involve non-IT executives in security training and the associated planning * Share with other participants your experience in the development and rollout of security training
