Transformational Security Awareness

By: Perry Carpenter

Overview of this book

When all other processes, controls, and technologies fail, humans are your last line of defense. But, how can you prepare them? Transformational Security Awareness empowers security leaders with the information and resources they need to assemble and deliver effective world-class security awareness programs that drive secure behaviors and culture change. If your organization is stuck in a security awareness rut and is using the same ineffective strategies, materials, and information that might check a compliance box but still leaves your organization wide open to phishing, social engineering, and security-related employee mistakes, then you need this book. Author Perry Carpenter weaves together insights and best practices from experts in communication, persuasion, psychology, behavioral economics, organizational culture management, employee engagement, and storytelling to create a multidisciplinary masterpiece that transcends traditional security education and sets you on the path to make a lasting impact in your organization.

Voices of Transformation: Interviews with Security Awareness Vendors

You have to have a big vision and take very small steps to get there. You have to be humble as you execute but visionary and gigantic in terms of your aspiration. In the Internet industry it's not about grand innovation; it's about a lot of little innovations: every day, every week, every month, making something a little bit better.1

Jason Calacanis, American Entrepreneur

One of the best parts of my job at Gartner, and in my current role at KnowBe4, is that I've had the chance to meet so many people who are passionate about their roles in helping employees to make better security decisions. In this first collection of “Voices of Transformation,” I'm going to let you hear directly from a number of transformational people who currently work within the vendor community, developing tools and content to serve the broad security awareness market.

I hope you are inspired by the passion...
