December 21, 2016 General Meeting

Presentation: Successfully Empowering Employees in Security Awareness

It’s a well-known statistic that the majority of cyber security incidents originate from end users within an organization. The emails they click through, their treatment of mobile devices with access to corporate data, and the general lack of awareness or empowerment they feel relative to understanding IT security risks leave most organizations operating as though the front door to the building has been left open – it’s become increasingly common for outsiders to gain easy access to corporate data, practically in broad daylight.

To better combat IT security challenges, Logical Operations has authored an expert-facilitated training course and accompanying credential that helps an organization not only implement a successful security awareness program, but build a process for ensuring their employees feel continuously empowered relative to IT security and their role in ensuring corporate data is left uncompromised. In this presentation, Logical Operations will talk through their recommendations for successfully implementing such a program, as well as the actions they’ve seen corporate clients take to better avoid data compromises
