People don’t like to take training. It feels like a chore and another thing on an already growing list of to-do’s. Unfortunately, with cyberattacks on the rise, we have to help our Microsoft employees be more vigilant than ever before. The only way to ensure employees know what to watch for and what to do in the event of a cyberattack is to drive awareness through training. But training alone has limitations; helping employees understand the “why” and changing fixed behaviors is critical to reducing an organization’s security risk. In this session, Ken Sexsmith, Director of Security Education and Awareness at Microsoft will share the unconventional approach his team has taken to train employees on the importance of being every day security stewards in, helping to protect one of the most valuable companies in the world.
