Foundstone’s network and information Security Awareness Programs help reduce the overall risk to an organization by integrating security into employees’ daily business decisions. Foundstone draws upon extensive experience in security penetration testing, policy creation, and forensics to create world-class awareness campaigns designed to meet corporate objectives and regulatory requirements.
If your organization does not have a security awareness program, Foundstone can help you develop one. Foundstone uses its expertise in security education to put together a year-long security awareness campaign that delivers security messages throughout the organization. A typical campaign highlights different security messages on a periodic basis. Implementing such a program complements your organization’s security efforts.
Training or education can be delivered by Foundstone in a variety of modes specifically targeted to each major employee role. These modes range from in-depth seminars for specific system administrators to break-room posters for general staff. Executive briefings can also be developed, as well as customized computer-based training sessions open to all users. We can also create customized security articles for inclusion in corporate newsletters, websites, and other company-wide periodicals. Content is developed on a regular basis so users are given a consistent, timely, and periodic security message. Depending on the audience and content, the delivery mechanism can range from one-hour brown-bag seminars to multiday workshops to “anytime” computer-based training.
Security Awareness 101 computer-based training is designed to teach all employees about their roles in protecting an organization’s assets from threats inside and outside the company. Employees learn how to protect themselves from electronic attacks such as viruses, worms and “sniffing” communications, social engineering, and physical threats.
While Ultimate Hacking: Hands On courses are primarily intended for IT security professionals, Foundstone’s Security Awareness Programs are meant for all employees, at any level within an organization. An employee base that is educated and aware of security issues is key to the success of any corporate-wide program. The importance of the human factor involved in enterprise security cannot be understated.
Whether for executive staff members, business managers, engineering groups, IT departments, or administrative personnel, the material Foundstone develops is relevant, timely, and appropriate.
