Millions of dollars have been invested to protect organization's information and network infrastructure and yet there are almost on a daily basis, case of security breaches and incidents are hitting headlines. The main reason for this is cyber criminals are exploiting the human layer, which is the weakest link in security to breach into organizations. Even though it is widely accepted within the information security professional community that human layer is the most important layer in securing organization’s sensitive information, little is being done to increase awareness and competence levels of the workforce. ‘Human factor’ – not technology is the key to providing adequate and appropriate level of security. If humans are the key, but also are a weak link, more and better attention must be paid to this ‘asset’. A robust and enterprise wide awareness and competence program is paramount to ensuring that people understand their information security responsibilities, organizational policies and how to properly use and protect the information resources entrusted to them. The target audience for this course are information security officers/ISMS managers, information security awareness officers, CIOs/CISOs/CSOs/CTOs, security auditors and governance and compliance officers, training managers/human resource managers and anyone responsible to plan and execute security awareness program. Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to identify the “As-Is” state of their organization’s awareness and competence levels, explain the difference between awareness, training and education and build and maintain a comprehensive awareness and competence program, as part of an organization’s information security program.
