End-User Security Awareness Programs That Work

Most successful cyber-attacks begin by manipulating an end user, via a phishing message or other social engineering attack. Instead of just being weak spots, imagine your users could be the security department's eyes and ears--the first to alert you to a potential threat. End users can only help, though, if you give them training that both educates them and makes them care about security. In this webinar learn how to create an end-user security awareness program that engages your users, builds a security culture, and reduces attackers' success rate.
