Corporate Best Practices in Security Awareness and Training Programs

I am often asked for security case studies and best practices in a variety of cybersecurity areas. Who is doing best in whatever the cyber-topic is? Any case studies to help? How can I learn more?

The live participants were at Lear headquarters, but Lear staff watch the event from as far away as South Africa. The topics discussed ranged from the worldwide cybertalent shortage to recent data breaches and ransomware attacks at various global organizations (Read more...)
