Security Education, Awareness, and Training

Security Education, Awareness, and Training

This book is the only one available on security training for all level of personnel. Currently, there are a handful of titles that cover guard forces and protection officers, but none that speak to security training for government, security, and non-security professionals. Chief Security Officers (CSO), security managers, and heads of security forces often have to design training programs themselves from scratch or rely on outside vendors and outside training companies to provide training which is often dry, stilted, and not always applicable to a specific corporate or government setting. "Security Education, Awareness and Training" addresses the theories of sound security training and awareness, then shows the reader how to put the theories into practice when developing or presenting any form of security education, training, motivation or awareness to organizational employees. Motivation is a key factor in how a trainer can make security essential to an organization and individual employees; it also speaks to the necessity of security and helps to shape policy and ways of making security inherent and "easy" for the employee to ensure a safe facility and working environment. Quite simply, there is no other book like this on the market today, and this one will be the one everyone turns to in order to learn and use for their own security programs. All three authors have at least 20 years each in one aspect of the security business or another, whether it be in program management, educational products, training, or research. But it should be added that, while working at the Department of Defense (DoD) Security Institute, we collaborated in developing and teaching an innovative course specifically for "security educators." The course attendees were individually tasked in their own organization to develop and execute educational security programs for their general employee populations. Usually they were starting from scratch rather than taking over from a previous security educator. Often these programs were described as "security awareness" programs, sometimes security education programs, an often security training. In those days the student clientele for the Security Educators" Seminar were drawn largely from industry and government agencies where the. These seminar attendees had many goals: safety, protection of proprietary information including protecting government and classified information, access control, coping with work-place violence, anti-terrorism, facility protection often a range of educational tasks rolled into the position description of a single person. What these professionals needed was not an understanding of security as we defined it, but skills and techniques for imparting awareness of vulnerabilities, threats, and consequences of ignorance; essential know-how to prevent bad things from happening; and strategies for enhancing motivations to do the right thing at the right time. We saw the central concept to be communication how to reach people, capture their attention, and ensure retention of essential information within security training programs. Over the years, there has always been the conflict between time, cost, and resources and the need for security awareness training. Now, it seems more corporations and government operations and facilities are willing to invest the time and money needed to properly train and education employees. While technology and corporate dynamics have changed and developed, the need for security awareness training has remained, in fact, has never been greater. These fundamental issues of awareness, motivation, and communication have not changed, and the proposed book is the authors" attempt to fill such a need in security training. - Discusses how to establish and integrate a structured, internally consistent and coherent program from the ground up - Assess and analyze security program needs and audience and customize training accordingly - Numerous Appendices to help the security manager justify security spending on training initiatives - Notes in margins emphasize key points and make for easy reference in training preparation
