It can be tempting to start deploying security awareness training as soon as the resoures are available. But you only get one chance, and it makes sense to plan it out.

Phase 1 – Assess where you’re at, including exec inputs

Phase 2 – Plan the content roll-out for both risk and compliance

Phase 3 – Engage business unit management to plan their roll-outs

Phase 4 – Create messaging to set expectations

Phase 5 – Begin roll-out of course content and assessments

Then do periodic assessments of knowledge and how the process is working, so you can make adjustments.

It’s tempting to “just start doing something”, and there are some things you can do. But if you get too far down the road without planning it will be hard to make time for planning later and to make significant adjustments without it looking like an ad-hoc program.
