Why is there a need for a comprehensive and ongoing security awareness and education program? Experts agree that employees are the greatest threat to an organization's security. In today's information age, one thing is clear: everyone's job, indeed the survival of the organization itself, depends more and more on how employees comprehend and comply with security procedures. This Creative Capstone Project will explain why there is a need for organizations to conduct comprehensive and ongoing security awareness education programs, the first step in developing a program (i.e. security policy), what tools are utilized to communicate the policy, how to continue educating employees on security issues, and finally a quick and dirty evaluative way to tell if the program is working.
