Description:

​Security Awareness is a core strategic pillar in the Corporate Information Security Office’s (CISO) Strategy Plan. While investment in security controls including additional perimeter hardware continues, most industry leaders in cyber security agree that a lack of user awareness is a critical weakness in the security posture. Public sector employees and contractors must become aware of their responsibilities and how to respond to cyber threats or incidents.
