Annapolis, MD (PRWEB) October 02, 2013

In support of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security, Secure Mentem, Inc. today launched a new offering, its National Cyber Security Awareness Month Support Package. This support package provides a review of an organization's current security awareness efforts and then provides the right materials and strategy required to roll out supporting cyber security awareness materials effectively. These materials include: daily tips, posters, newsletters, videos and other content. Secure Mentem also provides detailed instructions on how to hold events, such as bringing in speakers and showing movies, as well as creating interactive experiences such as creating mock cubicles and holding contests.

National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) is one of the most successful initiatives for promoting security awareness, which has become the top concern for many organizations. While many security programs already put programs in place, Secure Mentem's NCSAM Support Package provides a turnkey program for those organizations that have not put a program in place.

"National Cyber Security Awareness Month is a great time to take advantage of our nationwide effort to promote a strong culture of security education and awareness, however it has to be done effectively, in a way that will be impactful and memorable," said Ira Winkler, President of Secure Mentem. "Our new NCSA package is easy to implement and gives enterprises the tools they need to improve their security posture by educating employees."

Added Winkler, "As we've seen with many data breaches, all it takes is one phishing attack and one vulnerable employee to hand over the keys to the kingdom to the bad guys. Secure Mentem is dedicated to improving cyber security training and awareness not only during NCSA month but also as a year-round effort for all organizations."

Changing Employee Behaviors, Not Just Checking the Box

"It is traditionally difficult for security teams to obtain support for their efforts. National Cyber Security Awareness Month provides the motivation for organizations to support their security teams," said Jay Leek, Chief Information Security Officer at Blackstone. "Secure Mentem's NCSAM Support Package provides an inexpensive and efficient way for organizations to take advantage of the support, and then maintain and grow that support."

Secure Mentem continues to innovate the security awareness field by constantly address real world problems with highly effective awareness programs.
