The Roer Group is now accepting students for its Security Culture Summer Camp 2014!

Kai Roer leads this summer program. Roer has been in the information security community since 1994. He has based his career primarily on developing organizational communication leadership and security culture. Towards this end, he has hosted training programs and given speeches in 30 different countries across four continents.

The central topic of Roer’s camp is the Security Culture Framework (SCF), an open framework that organizations can use to build unique security cultures. The Framework emphasizes a number of important points, including the analytical versatility of human employees as compared to computers, the use of compliance only as a beginning guideline, and the need to embrace change when it comes to implementing security measures.

By the end of the camp, students will be well-versed in the Security Culture Framework, knowledge which they can use to develop their own organizational security cultures as well as articulate their budgetary needs to management.

This camp is organized according to a hybrid format that blends pre-recorded sessions with live Google Hangouts, where students can interact with each other and their instructor. Students will also be expected to complete a weekly assignment during the duration of the camp.

Anyone with a broad interest in security culture, awareness, and security behaviors, including CISOs, IT security manages, and HR and training professionals, are encouraged to enroll.

The Security Culture Summer Camp begins on Monday, June 16th. The cost of enrollment is $499. However, if you email, you can learn about some exciting ways for how you can save on your enrollment fee.

The summer is a perfect time to learn something new, so there’s no better time to enroll in the Security Culture Summer Camp! To find out more, please click here.
