Education - the Forgotten Protective Security Measure for Critical National Infrastructure

Tuesday, February 17
10:30-11:20
Breakout 1

Security education (SyEd) programmes work by increasing security whilst reducing risks! This presentation will demonstrate that SyEd is underused in protecting organisational assets against loss, harm or damage events.

Millions of dollars are spent on security technology in protecting organisational assets; especially critical infrastructure. The same organisations budget for security education programmes is a fraction of this, if represented at all. This presentation will demonstrate that a proactive security education programme will support and enhance the levels of organisational security applications, reduce organisational and personal risks and has the potential to create the biggest ‘bang for the buck’ security benefit used by an organisation. The presentation will show that SyEd programmes can be used by any organisation and represents great value for money, in financially difficult times.
