CSAP Course 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.

This course is appropriate for:

  • Established security practitioners with existing security expertise who are new to the practice of security training and awareness
  • People with existing marketing and communications experience who are entering the field of security training and awareness

InfoSec Institute’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.

What Our Students Are Saying

Without any question, InfoSec has the most gifted individual instructors. Our instructor for this class was both an excellent educator and a premier/world class security expert. He was able to clearly explain and impart to the students, the most complicated security techniques I have ever heard of or imagined. I simply can not find the words to recommend him and Infosec security training more highly.
