Email weekly reminders:

Week 1
Shh...TOP SECRET! By joining an organization or company you take on the responsibility of keeping private information to yourself. Think about it like joining a club with top secret information only people in the club should have access to. The first rule...

Week 2

Just like you would never want to give someone with lactose intolerance a big bowl of ice cream, you would never want to give classified information to someone who should not have it.  Knowing what someone should or should not have is key when classifying data... as well as properly labeling the milk!

Week 3

Have you ever been on diet? It's important to put types of food into healthy vs non-healthy categories to be successful; or if you're doing Keto, low carb vs not. So you better know which diet you are doing in order to eat the right food. That's how data classification works! Even if you know standard classification, it's important to learn our data classification policy.

Week 4

Along with most aspects of security awareness, if you are unsure if something is safe to share outside of the organization - ASK! Just like you would ask a friend first before sharing information about them to another person, always make sure your company is comfortable with the things you are sharing elsewhere.  It really is as simple as asking!

One-Liner Messaging

Did you know your company org. chart is private information that should never be shared with anyone outside the organization? It's important to understand what could be a threat in the hands of the wrong person.

Take ownership of the data you have access to within the company. Every email, Slack, Yammer, and video call conversation are are private conversations to keep internally. Unsure if something is safe to share? Ask your Security Team!

The first step to protecting company information is understanding what data is private vs. public. Check out the newly released Modules at [companyname] to learn more!
