Some More Information I'd Like For You To Know…

If you are not yet convinced, I want to provide you with a bit more information!

Protecting Information quarterly multi-media awareness newsletter helps personnel better understand
information security and privacy issues and incorporate them into their every day work activities, along with
their home activities.  The topics I cover, in addition to how I write them to be applicable for all levels of
personnel, and all types of learners, also help to measurably increase your personnel's information security
and privacy awareness and understanding.

My quarterly newsletter is different in many ways from the other information security and privacy newsletters
that are offered…
  1. It is much better at raising the awareness of ALL personnel throughout the enterprise. I have had many people who used to subscribe to another known newsletter state that it is written for readers who already have knowledge and understanding of information security concepts. I am writing my awareness product, Protecting Information, to speak to the average worker, to help each to understand the issues as it relates to him or her, using their own terminology.
  2. My newsletter covers both information security and privacy, not just information security.
  3. This quarterly subscription package is composed of three primary components:
    • A "newsletter" type of resource, Protecting Information, targeted to all personnel. Besides targeting the visual learners, it will have activities to also target the hands-on learners. The variety of information will be more reader-friendly than the other awareness newsletters I've seen, plus I am including a unique feature to apply to employees' entire families; something to show them that security and privacy issues are something they must be concerned with not only at work, but also throughout their daily life situations.
    • I also provide a separate, instructive and consultative, document with each quarterly issue "Awareness Advisor," to provide awareness tips, tools and advice to the CISO/info sec leader and CPO/privacy leader subscribers. Within each Awareness Advisor I also provide instruction or how to measure the effectiveness, in many different ways, of the newsletter for raising the awareness of personnel.
    • An MP3 audio file of the feature article to reach the audio learners. This can easily be downloaded onto iPods and other MP3 players for personnel to listen to during their commutes, while exercising, during meetings to then discuss, etc.
  4. Within each issue I include an article written by a teen to provide a teen's perspective of various issues that impact each employee's family. The information provided in the newsletter is written and provided in such a way that employees can, and should be encouraged to, take it home and discuss with their own families to help protect their own family computers and information. The teen article is something with which everyone in employee's families can relate. This helps to show your personnel that by doing information security and privacy practices they are not only helping your organization, they are also helping to protect their own families and home situations.
  5. My awareness product truly does speak to ALL personnel at ALL levels of an organization, using terminology understandable by non-security folks, and incorporating my experience and background in education to use the proven concepts that must be utilized to effectively communicate to all three types of learners:
    • Visual (this is typically the only group current awareness products speak to)
    • Audio (those who learn best by listening to information)
    • Kinesthetic (hands-on learners; those who need to do activities to learn)
  6. Protecting Information is customizable by the companies who subscribe to it. I provide suggestions throughout the Word version of each issue for how the CISO/CPO/etc. subscriber can make changes to make it his or her own.
I'd love to tell you more; let me know if I can give you any more information!
