2017 SANS Security Awareness Report

Tuesday, May 30, 2017


One of the biggest challenges awareness officers struggle with is we have so little data to make decisions. The 3rd annual SANS Security Awareness Report changes that. With feedback from over 1,000 awareness professionals, we provide you data driven action items you can take to build, maintain and measure a high-impact program. Learn what the data reveals, including what are the most common challenges awareness programs face, how successful awareness programs overcome those challenges, and how can your organization replicate what they are doing. Top items you will learn will include:

  1. The number one resource you should be asking for.
  2. How to get/maintain leadership support and why its so important.
  3. The key soft skill to long term success and how to develop it.
  4. Benchmark the maturity of your awareness program against others.
