Arctic Wolf security awareness program experts—who created security awareness programs for Disney, Sony, as well as our Managed Security Awareness solution—recently produced The Complete Security Awareness Plan and Strategy Guide
to help you evaluate and elevate your own security awareness program.
The guide offers valuable information and strategic insight for anyone involved in managing, assessing, and executing a security awareness program. And with social engineering threats already skyrocketing by 270 percent this year
, there’s no better time than now to raise your employees’ cyber hygiene and implement a new security awareness program—or revisit your existing program to make key improvements that not only raise your organization’s security awareness, but your overall security posture as well.
A successful program isn’t something you conduct haphazardly. It involves lots of planning and thought. But don’t worry, our guide has laid the groundwork for you, and helps you map out a security awareness program and evaluate your efforts over time. It walks you through each element of a successful program to give you the strategies you need to power up your employees so they’ll become active members of the culture of security that you intend to bring to your organization.
Using our guide as your security awareness roadmap, you’ll establish a strong foundation for ensuring your employees employ strong cybersecurity practices across every department and throughout your company. We help you choose a mission statement that’s right for you, define the roles and responsibilities your team will need, and establish an advisory board who can provide strategic input on an ongoing basis and provide the top-level guidance you’ll need.
