A multilayered approach to security is critical. While most businesses have cybersecurity tools and technology in place, humans continue to be the weakest link in IT security.

For this reason, you need to have a dedicated employee who will be responsible for promoting a security-minded workplace culture. This person needs to enthusiastically champion the security cause.

In this session, we will unpack the role of a security champion. You will learn why you need one and what their duties should be.


  • Duties of a security champion
  • How and where to get started
  • Top 3 to-dos
  • Ongoing tasks
