SEM04P - Building a Culture of Digital Self-Defense (separate registration is required)

Monday, May 01 | 1:00PM–4:30PM | Colorado Ballroom GH, Lower Level 2
Session Type: Additional Fee Program
Delivery Format: Preconference Seminar
One of the biggest challenges in information security is raising the awareness of our communities so that they recognize threats and understand how to defend themselves. It's a multiyear process, but the key is to stick with it and not be afraid to try new ways of raising awareness and enlisting your communities so that they become part of your security team. Workshop participants will use provided templates to develop a high-level strategic security awareness plan and identify key components for one or two specific elements of that plan.

Outcomes: Understand the key elements and considerations in creating a security awareness plan * Complete a high-level plan and identify specific deliverables around one or two topics * Identify appropriate metrics for evaluating effectiveness

Note Seminar Attendees: Prior to the seminar, please complete as much of the Strategic Communications Template as you can (or at least read through it). The Strategic Communication Plan Template will be used as a basis for workshop activities.
