Gamify Security Awareness: Failure to Engage is Failure to Secure - Michael Woolard Bsides Cleveland 2016 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Gamify Security Awareness: Failure to Engage is Failure to Secure
Michael Woolard

We call it security awareness training, but all we ever give our employees is regurgitated knowledge. Their passwords suck, public wifi is bad, and email is deceiving. Mix in some yearly reviews of policies and procedures and you have the perfect recipe for an employee who stopped listening hours ago. You don't truly learn something until you understand "why" and that comes when employees are engaged and motivated. This is my take on how to engage through gaming and why it works

Mike is a security analyst who has worked in the IT field for 17+ years. A broad background from helpdesk to sysadmin, system engineer, networking, DB and development work. Most of Mike's work now centers around pentests and risk assessments, but an integral part will always be awareness training. An active member in various local security groups including NEOISF, OWASP, infragard and the Information Security Summit.
