When is the Best Time to Establish a Training & Awareness Program?

Best time to establish a Training and Awareness Program is at the beginning of the BCP lifecycle.  There are many benefits of starting this part of the program early:

  1. Can use training to communicate best practices and policies from the start
  2. Track training improvements to quantify progress
  3. Unify communication to better solidify key concepts
  4. Heighten awareness of program to a wider audience which can result in increased support
  5. Use information gathered from training to help redefine and develop the program as it progresses
  6. Taylor training to specific needs of participants, updating as the needs progress,  resulting in increased program quality and efficiency
