Welcome to the Microsoft security awareness program tool kit and guide. Microsoft recognizes that information security awareness and training is critical to any organization’s information security strategy and supporting security operations. People are in many cases the last line of defense against threats such as malicious code, disgruntled employees, and malicious third parties. Therefore, people need to be educated on what your organization considers appropriate security-conscious behavior, and also what security best practices they need to incorporate in their daily business activities. This kit was created to provide guidance, samples, and templates for creating a security awareness program.
Security Awareness Program Development Guidance
This guidance material includes a white paper Key Considerations for Developing Effective Information and Training Programs that outlines how to successfully and effectively address an information security awareness and training program. Included is an accompanying information security awareness presentation titled The Role of Information Security in Everyday Business. This presentation provides content that can be leveraged for effective security awareness presentations to organizations’ entire workforces, and also can be used to serve as an official launch of the information security awareness and training program in your organization. Also included is an End User Security Awareness presentation template and video, providing material to help articulate what is involved with building an information security awareness and training program to your management and peers within your company.
Sample Awareness Materials
Included is sample awareness content that has been used worldwide to help people recognize and respond to security and safety issues. This content has been used in community programs, schools, industry organizations, and online via staysafe.org.
