While the importance of securing the user has become obvious, efforts to improve user awareness have not generally improved as programs rely upon available tools, and not experience. Ira Winkler has three decades of experience in improving security behaviors, and details what consistently works and what does not. This session will dispel many commonly held beliefs about security awareness.

Learning Objectives:
1: Learn and apply what works consistently across hundred of organizational awareness efforts.
2: Learn from research in other disciplines that improves awareness efforts.
3: Learn how to create a security culture that drives individual security behaviors.

While most security practitioners will take away value in better understanding security awareness, attendees who have experience in managing or implementing security and security awareness programs will reap the greatest benefits and will be in a position to apply the materials.
