Connecting Security and Awareness at the Personal Level
Presented by: Ryan Kurtenbach, Emporia State University

In August 2016, the Emporia State University IT Security team launched a new Security Awareness Campaign to address the growing number of phishing scams, compromised accounts, and other security related issues. We accomplished this by developing engaging promotional materials, offering an incentive for people to participate through activities and interactive events, and creating a baseline by formulating practical policies and guidelines for users. Our activities included informational sessions, interactive workshops, contests and social events.  During the course of our campaign, we realized the importance of relationships. People were much more receptive to our advice when we met them on a personal level, as opposed to telling them what they have to do.
