Many organizations have spent a significant amount of resources to ensure job specific training while simultaneously connecting their people to the Internet with little training on how to avoid its pitfalls.

Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, today announced it will host a research Webinar titled “Security Awareness Training: Are We Getting Any Better at Organizational and Internet Security?” featuring David Monahan, research director of security and risk management at EMA.

For the second year in a row, EMA has delved into the world of security awareness and policy training. The latest research on this topic - with over 600 participating respondents - revealed that a tremendous shift in awareness training programs has taken place, especially across the previously underserved SMB space.

During the webinar, Monahan will explain the reasons for this shift, as well as provide other insights into this new research including:

  • Training content is becoming more accessible to organizations of all sizes from both a delivery and cost perspective.
  • Programs are becoming more effective and have better measurement and management capabilities.
  • Due to training, employees are better at recognizing various forms of social engineering.
  • Trained personnel recognize that they make better security choices at home as well as at work, further increasing the value of training.

The Webinar is Tuesday, October 6 at 2:00 p.m. EDT. Those who wish to attend can register at: http://research.enterprisemanagement.com/security-awareness-training-2015-webinar-pr.html
