Product description

From the Back Cover

Gain greater compliance with corporate training by addressing the heart of the very awareness vs. compliance problem: people are human. People have incredible strengths and incredible weaknesses, and as a Information Security professional, you need to recognize and devise training strategies that take advantage of both. This concise book introduces two such strategies, which combined, can take a security awareness program to the next level of effectiveness, retention, compliance, and maturity.
Security policies and procedures are often times inconvenient, technically complex, and hard to understand. Advanced Persistent Training provides numerous tips from a wide range of disciplines to handle these especially difficult situations.

Many information security professionals are required by regulation or policy to provide security awareness training within the companies they work for, but many believe that the resulting low compliance with training does not outweigh the costs of delivering that training. There are also many who believe that this training is crucial, if only it could be more effective.

About the Author

Jordan Schroeder is a former department head at a technical school and corporate trainer. As an information security expert and a moderator of the Security.StackExchange.com forum, he is dedicated to researching and delivering effective and innovative methods to teach professionals and laypeople alike how to digitally secure their organizations and the assets they control. Jordan developed and runs SelfPhish, a phishing education and research platform aimed at discovering an individual's vulnerability to different types of social engineering attacks, then tailoring Security Awareness training to that individual.
