Why it's important
For any security initiative to be successful, it must have staying power. Most companies are in business to make money which means if they have one day a year to train, they are lucky. So how do you make that training stick for the other 364 days? Embedding security into the company culture through education and empowering employees is proven to provide successful results.
"Precise, very appropriate information and presentation of material was second to none in the Creating a Security Minded Culture online course. If you have a company of any size, I highly recommend this, especially in today's time."
-Scott T., Tactics Instructor CBP, AMO Tactical Medic
Security is the responsibility of every employee; however, it is the responsibility of their leaders to create a culture in which security is a priority. Employees cannot be afraid to report suspicious behavior or individuals to the appropriate departments within their company, but they first need to have tools place for reporting and be provided training, so they recognize what and when to report. This course was created to help companies protect their most valuable assets; their employees. It provides comprehensive guidelines for mid to executive level managers, enabling security to become part of the existing culture and facilitating an environment which promotes a mind shift change for employees. The goal is prevention but always have a plan to mitigate. We prepare only for what we expect.
