    Hey guys, I’d love to learn which of the five basic approaches to security awareness training are most common here on /hq/smallbusiness. The most common approaches I see day-to-day are: A) • The Break Room Approach Employees are gathered for a lunch or special meeting once or annually and told what to avoid when surfing the web, when receiving emails from unknown sources, etc. B) • The Monthly Security Video Approach Employees view short security awareness training videos to learn how to keep the network and organization safe and secure. C) • The Phishing Test Approach Certain employees are pre-selected, sent a simulated phishing attack, and then security staff determine if they fall prey to the phishing attack. D) • The Human Firewall Approach Everyone in the organization is tested, the percentage of employees who are prone to phishing attacks is determined, and then everyone is trained on major attack vectors, sending simulated phishing attacks on a regular basis. E) • The Do-Nothing Approach Organizations don’t do security awareness training. If you want to answer below with the letter that best summarize your approach, I’ll edit this post to include a summary of the stats for the subhq overview. I’d also love to hear more about your particular approach, and if you’re using an entirely different approach. – by hq overview BroHeart – –
