Topic: Successfully Empowering Employees in Security Awareness
 
It’s a well-known statistic that the majority of cyber security incidents originate from end users within an organization. The emails they click through, their treatment of mobile devices with access to corporate data, and the general lack of awareness or empowerment they feel relative to understanding IT security risks leave most organizations operating as though the front door to the building has been left open – it’s become increasingly common for outsiders to gain easy access to corporate data, practically in broad daylight.

To better combat IT security challenges, Logical Operations has authored an expert-facilitated training course and accompanying credential that helps an organization not only implement a successful security awareness program, but build a process for ensuring their employees feel continuously empowered relative to IT security and their role in ensuring corporate data is left uncompromised. In this presentation, Logical Operations will talk through their recommendations for successfully implementing such a program, as well as the actions they’ve seen corporate clients take to better avoid data compromises.

 
Speaker: Joe Mignano and Jeanie Sanders, Logical Operations
 
Joe Mignano leads the Channels group at Logical Operations. In this role, Joe is responsible for setting Logical Operations’ certification development strategy (which includes certifications in IT Security, secure mobile application development, vendor-neutral cloud computing, and virtualization), initiating public relations and other awareness efforts relative to Logical Operations’ certification products, and building partnerships aimed at developing a broader channel for Logical Operations’ certification products worldwide.

Jeanie Sanders is a Logical Operations Instructor with over 15 years of classroom experience. She is certified by Microsoft, CompTIA, and Epic, and has taught classes on Microsoft Office, Network Operating Systems, Healthcare software and Trainer Development. In her current role, she meets with trainers to share ideas and tackle the tough questions relating to the management of today’s computer training classroom using resources that help create the best possible learning environment for students.
