Security Awareness Program


Building a Security Awareness Program - CyberGuard
Hackers, worms and viruses grab the headlines, but the real threat often comes not from outside the organization but within.

This article offers a practical approach to setting up an effective security awareness program that gets everyone in the organization on board.

The overall goal for use of this document is to facilitate the development or strengthening of a comprehensive, measurable, cost-effective IT security program which supports the missions of the organization and is administered as an integral element of sound IT management and planning. Protecting the value of an organizationís information assets demands no less. This approach allows senior officials to understand where, in what way, and to what extent IT-related job responsibilities include IT security responsibilities, permitting the most cost-effective allocation of limited IT security training resources.
