One of the biggest challenges people face when building a high-impact security awareness program is where to start. Changing human behavior is hard, to do it right requires a lot of planning and coordination. To help build your program check out the "Security Awareness Planning Kit". This kit is a collection of templates, checklists, plans and materials that walk you through step-by-step on how to build a new or update an existing awareness program. These materials were developed by other security awareness officers, people just like you trying to make a difference with limited time and resources. This kit saves you time and effort by enabling you to build on and leverage what other awareness officers have already developed and successfully used.
While this Planning Kit has been available for over a year, we have released a new version. Over the past year we have received so many new resources from different security awareness officers that we are calling this version 2.0. We continue to use the Security Awareness Roadmap as the framework, however the Planning Kit now has far more materials to help different organizations in different stages of their program. As always, you can download the latest version of the "Security Awareness Planning Kit" at http://www.securingthehuman.org/resources/planning.
If you are interested in learning more about how to take your security awareness program to the next level, consider attending the Security Awareness Summit in Dallas this coming 10 September.
