One of the greatest challenges facing organizations in building a security awareness program is where to start, how do you plan, develop, deploy and maintain an effective awareness program? Here you will find various resources to help you plan and maintain an awareness program that is not only compliant, but engages your employees and focuses on reducing risk by changing their behaviors. These resources are developed by the community for the community. Please send any feedback on how to improve these resources to email@example.com.

Security Awareness Sticker Challenge
In June, 2012 SANS Securing The Human sponsored the first Security Awareness Sticker Challenge, challenging the community to come up with engaging and informative awareness stickers. Over forty ideas were submitted which you can download from below. You are welcome to use any of the ideas for your own awareness program. You can even apply many of these ideas to other items including mousepads, calendars, posters and many other training items.
