Introduction to Training and Awareness Course

Take a look at what's going on in the world of training and awareness, including potential obstacles and concerns.

15 minutes

Course description

In this course, we’ll look at the current state of training and awareness and employee engagement. We’ll discover the biases that lead people to believe they don’t need security training, and the apathy and fatigue that they bring when they interact with security awareness content. Finally, we’ll look at the natural distractibility of human beings and how our awareness and training programs can take that into account by design.
