I am embarking on a long tough project, part of which has to do with providing security training and awareness to a audience of 1500 people. I am wondering what others are doing to help get across some security messages - such as the computer security department won't ask you for your password and userid to check on something. Thanks.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

To give an answer, i would have to know more about your security policy, industry, and current enforcement in your company. These are the three key factors in selling security in the organization–you have to sell to the perceived needs of your audience.

    Hell, who did you annoy? Just as an idea, one of the clients I worked for went through the following process for information security awareness: They put together an audio-visual presentation (video would also have worked well) and scheduled screenings. It was obligatory for all staff to attend one, so a register was kept, and a short monkey-puzzle test was given at the close of the session. This was marked, and failures notified to their management. This was followed by a weekly e-mailed presentation about a specific topic - Choosing an appropriate password, Avoiding virus's by not loading stuff from Internet/external media, Reasons for screensaver security, etc - very short, one page, lots of moving picture, slide-ins, etc. What I couldn't tell you is how effective this all was. Have fun!

    The following are two potential resources to help you in your efforts:
    www.awareity.com

    Remember that one of the most important things with awareness/training is to keep your messages 'top of mind' for your users...periodic and consistent reminders are key.
