At Securing the Human we know and understand that technology, cyber threats, business requirements, and standards constantly adapt and change. As such so to should your awareness program. To ensure you have the most effective and engaging program possible we do a thorough review and update of all our training materials twice a year. By update we mean a complete review of WHO we are training, WHAT we are teaching (ultimately what behaviors we are attempting to change) and HOW we communicating these lessons.
Last Updated: 26 November, 2012
We recently completed our second review for 2012, called the 2012.2 release. For this review process we brought in 29 individuals to help review and update our entire training program, including our Board of Advisors, leading Subject Matter Experts, and existing customers. As a result of this bi-annual review we had major updates for 16 existing modules and minor updates of 4 modules. These updates were almost entirely additional lessons learned, new examples or improved animation. In addition we added six new training modules, specifically
- The Cloud
- Advanced Persistent Threat
- Social Security Numbers
- Data Retention
- International Traffic in Arms Regulations
- FISMA Introduction
Following this update process we then went through all the materials and translated them into twenty-two languages. Learn more about the new program and see examples of the new and updated training at our video demos page.
We know and understand that for some of you have bandwidth limitations. Starting with the new release of our training all videos in all languages automatically include a low-bandwidth version, allowing your employees to get the same high-quality training but in hard to reach locations.
For those of you using the SANS VLE, moving forward the new content will be streamed from the Amazon cloud. This means our videos are replicated on 24 servers around the world, ensuring that no matter where your employees are, their video training will be loaded by a server close to their geographical location. As a result, you should begin to see faster loading and playback times. Learn more about Amazon Cloud at http://aws.amazon.com/cloudfront.
