A Better Approach to Security Awareness

Here’s a novel (and sorely needed) approach to security awareness training – videos that users will actually want to watch. From the Hashtag Awareness website:

Cyber security training videos are bad. We know, we’ve sat through them.

Jason Hoenich has spent years building security awareness programs for companies like Disney, Sony Pictures, and Activision Blizzard.
