Boot camp overview

Building a robust security awareness program is important, but it can be in vain if your employees don’t buy into what you’re selling and actually change their security behavior. In this three-day course, you’ll not only learn how to create a security awareness program, you’ll learn proven persuasion and inspiration techniques to help you “sell” employees on security and influence the security culture of your organization.

Infosec’s intensive boot camp also prepares you to pass the IACRB Certified Security Awareness Practitioner (CSAP) exam. You’ll leave the course armed with practical tips to take back to your organization to help create and manage a successful security awareness program — and ultimately influence security behaviors and your organization’s security culture.
