Security awareness programs help organizations achieve the ultimate goal of fewer security incidents, but how do the benefits compare to the costs and time requirements? A new study by Osterman Research uses data from 230 organizations to answer this question and quantify the ROI of security awareness training for both large and small organizations.

This episode of the Cyber Work podcast is a rebroadcast of a webinar featuring Michael Osterman, President and Analyst at Osterman Research, and Lisa Plaggemier, Chief Evangelist at Infosec. In this podcast, you’ll learn:

  • How to calculate security awareness ROI at your organization
  • The opportunity cost of not having an awareness program
  • Costs and returns of security awareness training
