Continuously Train to Boost Security Culture
The security world is littered with the failures of poorly executed annual security awareness programs. If organizations are going to mitigate the human factor among their general user base, they need to create a culture of security. Step one of establishing that culture is by adopting a continuous training approach.
'Creating an awareness and training program that provides continuous education and testing throughout the year is imperative for creating a first line of defense,' says Renee Tarun, vice president of information security at Fortinet.
Without it, users will forget what they've learned and are not likely to keep security top-of-mind on a daily basis.
Most users 'are not born with security best practices encoded in their DNA,' adds Kathie Miley, COO of Cybrary, noting that users are typically heads-down doing their job and not paying attention to the latest attack trends or threat vectors likely to target them. 
It shouldn't be on users to figure security out, says Miley. 'It is our responsibility as leaders in our companies, she says, [because] 'users are not in the weeds of security and simply don't think about the next application exploit or threat vector.'
