Web Conference Overview

Most organizations do some form of security awareness training for their employees, but not all of them do it well. Organizations of all types and sizes frequently fail to build effective programs that really help employees change their behavior—and keep data safe.

In this webcast, top experts in security training will offer insights on what works best in security awareness programs—and what doesn’t. You’ll get insights on how to build a curriculum that trains employees to make smarter security decisions, preventing them from engaging in online practices that could put your corporate data at risk.

Be sure to submit your questions during registration so our presenters can get you the answers you need.
