    Despite an increase in security awareness training, and concern about awareness by top-level management at companies, data breaches continue to happen through employee negligence, whether malicious or not.

    In the latest episode of Security Sessions, I spoke with Michael Bruemmer, vice president at Experian Data Breach Resolution, about a recent survey that said companies are unprepared to stop employee-caused data breaches.

    Among the highlights of the video are the following sections:

    1:15 Why it’s surprising that employees are still responsible for data breaches and additional discussion from the Experian survey.

    2:18 Where awareness training is failing, and what companies can do to improve.

    3:26 Are granular awareness programs (specific training for specific job roles) on the rise?

    4:57 Should employees be fired if they fail to become more aware about security?

    5:45 Why are CEOs and other C-level executives often exempted from security training?

    07:04 How can CSOs motivate employees positively in thinking about security?
