Unless IT security is a core element of someone's job, it is not necessarily considered one of their on-going development needs. All too often, employees get just an initial presentation from the IT department when they start and are expected to remember it, keep up to speed with changes, and adhere to ever-changing IT security policies and procedures.

What are you doing to make sure your workforce is security aware?

This slideshow features a seven-step security awareness action plan, identified by Dominic Saunders, senior vice president of the NETconsent business unit at Cryptzone, to help ensure employees are onboard and up-to-speed on company security policies.
