The value of security awareness training may be obvious to you and other security professionals. But in order to launch a new or more comprehensive training program, you’ll need to convince management—and your end-users. To make your case for security awareness training, speaking the language of your customer is key.

Expect tough questions: What’s wrong with what we’re doing now? What measurable goals can the program achieve? How does the program justify the cost? Users may have concerns about being tested with simulated phishing and whether training will interfere with their work.

Taking the time to win over doubters and skeptics can reduce obstacles—and even turn them into future champions for your program. In this web conference you’ll learn about:

•  Best practices for selling the value of security awareness training internally
•  Preparing a business case for your training program
•  Engaging employees through creative programming, recognition and incentives
