“One of the most important things that we’re really focused on is ensuring that our security awareness program is keeping up with all the various threats that are evolving. We are moving away from computer-based training and have moved toward using video and a lot of smaller more edible content over the entire course of the year. That’s proving to be pretty effective.”

“Another thing that we’ve been doing, which is a really important is that we do a lot of testing as part of our security awareness training. It’s really baked into the culture here. As we see threats occurring out there, we’ll internalize them, we’ll evaluate them, and we’ll turn around and test our employees. A lot of that will occur around phishing campaigns, so we’ll test different departments to give them the ability to figure out, 'What do I do if I see this come across my table?’”
