Security awareness is the knowledge and attitude members of an organization possess regarding the protection of the physical and especially, information assets of that organization. Many organizations require formal security awareness training for all workers when they join the organization and periodically thereafter, usually annually.
Topics covered in security awareness training include:
Being security aware means you understand that there is the potential for some people to deliberately or accidentally steal, damage, or misuse the data that is stored within a company's computer systems and throughout its organization. Therefore, it would be prudent to support the assets of the institution (information, physical, and personal) by trying to stop that from happening.
According to the European Network and Information Security Agency, “Awareness of the risks and available safeguards is the first line of defence for the security of information systems and networks.”
