Title: Employee Security Awareness


This episode of the Information Security Podcast features an interview with Lauren Zink from Oportun  @Oportun with host Rob Nettgen (@Robert_Nettgen).  This episode’s conversation discusses the importance of “Employee Security Awareness” as part of an organization’s overall Cyber Security Strategy.

Key Discussion Points and Actionable Items:

  • The importance of understanding the meaning of “Employee Security Awareness”
  • Defining the elements of a “Employee Security Awareness” Program and how it should be orchestrated within an organization
  • Understanding that “Employee Security Awareness” is not a “one-time” event but starts at the time an employee is hired and evolves as they move through an organization
  • The risk organizations assume when technology is the only line of defense and does not incorporate “Employee Security Awareness”
  • Integration of third-party vendors and contractors that are part of an organization into the “Employee Security Awareness” Program
  • “Employee Security Awareness” is the responsibility of the entire organization, including Human Resources, Training, and Compliance, and is not limited to the Cyber Security Team.
