Expert Security Awareness Program Content

Expert Security Awareness Program Content

Don't trust your security awareness training outcomes to stale or boring content that doesn't change behavior. SANS security awareness content is developed using the most effective instructional design techniques to ensure high learner engagement while maximizing the opportunities for behavior change. Interactive learning is a key focus of SANS content and focuses on getting your learners to both "know" and "do" the right thing at the right time with accuracy and consistency.

Interactive learning spotlight

Our Password course asks learners to review methods for creating strong passwords, how to use passwords safely and how to use security questions to protect your online accounts. Learners then demonstrate their strength for each individual task while also showing competency across the global set of skills needed to protect passwords. We use learner scores as feedback to review content, and plan the next iteration of development. Our goal is to keep learners ready and hungry for the next challenge.

With SANS security awareness content, you can:

  • Change behavior with advanced instructional design techniques
  • Incorporate the most up-to-date cyber threat material
  • Keep your program up to date with new interactive training and awareness content
