Wombat's Continuous Security Awareness and Training Methodology

To be most effective, cyber security awareness training must be an ongoing approach to maximize learning and lengthen retention of the learned topics.  The methodology outlined below should be approached as an evolving program that strives towards continuous improvement.  Research and industry results have shown that the current methods of classroom and video training once a year is not effective in the battle against cyber-attack.  A continuous cycle of assessment, evaluation and education has been proven to provide reduced vulnerability and longer retention.
