7 Reasons for Security Awareness Failure

There is a good column currently on CSO Magazine’s online site that is titled “7 Reasons for Security Awareness Failure.”  While it is geared to corporate security environments, it resonates with the retail loss prevention world, as well.  The seven reasons outlined are:

  1. Not understanding what security awareness really is
  2. Reliance on checking the box
  3. Failing to acknowledge that awareness is a unique discipline
  4. Lack of engaging and appropriate materials
  5. Not collecting metrics
  6. Unreasonable expectations
  7. Relying upon a single training exercise

As a provider of training and awareness programs for retail, we see many of these problems on a weekly basis.  I’d suggest you review the article and let us know if you would like to discuss how you can make your awareness investments more successful.
