People are the weakest link in the security chain.

Turn the greatest weakness into the first line of defense and keep out of the headlines. Help keep your network safe by educating staff with Symantec Security Awareness Service web-based training videos.

Your proprietary information is at risk every day and it's more than data that you lose. Data breaches cost money, customers, and even market share. Unfortunately, many breaches result from a lack of employee awareness of the security risks inherent in their actions online, in social media, at work and at home.

What is SAS?

There are three basic requirements for a strong security awareness program – It must be: Engaging. Measurable. and Evolving. And that’s exactly what the Symantec Security Awareness Service, or SAS, is designed to do. The SAS is a subscription-based video training series designed to capture attention, deliver results, and strengthen security-conscious behavior in your organization. It is comprised of over 60 videos, a collection of marketing assets, and a security-focused executive newsletter to help you make the most of the program.

Who is SAS for?

SAS is beneficial to everyone, from an individual owner-operator to a large corporation - everyone benefits from this program. You don’t have to be a security expert or have a technical degree to appreciate and understand the content delivered in this program. Even the most technical concepts are presented in a way that allows everyone to benefit.

In addition to the SAS video subscription, we offer live instructor-led training (ILT) workshops or speaking engagement targeting C-level executives with higher permissions and delivered by a Symantec subject matter expert.

How much does it cost?

There are pricing structures and discounts to complement any size organization, from a small shop to the largest enterprise. No two organizations are the same, so you’ll want to contact our team to get an idea of what we can do for you. If you’re an individual user, you can secure a license for as little as $35 a month.

SAS ILT requires a SAS subscription to the online video training series and is available for an additional fee.

What you get with a SAS Subscription

Engaging

  • The Security Awareness videos are short, concise and rich in multimedia with robust motion graphics. 3-D animations with memorable characters engage the viewer and make the training enduring. The latest videos have gaming interactions that captivate the learner with scenario branching. Additionally, customers automatically receive new releases every quarter on new and updated videos.
  • Real-life Scenarios – Each training video is written by Symantec, a world leader in cyber security. We are the largest security-focused vendor to offer security awareness training, working with cyber threats on a daily basis. We have an understanding of evolving threats better than anyone in the industry.

Measurable

This easy-to-use LMS is cloud-based, secure, and can be accessed anywhere, anytime by your learners. We also include job-aids and deployment guides, written by Instructional Designers, on getting started in the system.

Evolving

  • Because new threats are emerging all the time, security awareness information must be refreshed regularly in order to remain relevant. Just as cybersecurity defense strategies must continually adapt, security awareness training is never finished. New videos are being added all the time as existing threats evolve and new threats emerge.
  • Bi-monthly Newsletters – Subscriptions include the exclusive bi-monthly newsletter delivered right to your Inbox. Each issue includes SAS program updates, quick tips, and hand-selected cyber articles that intentionally align with the SAS videos and latest threats in the headlines.
  • Marketing Tools - SAS helps change organizations’ cultures through varied formats to drive employee engagement, adoption and success. The SAS subscription includes printable posters, HTML email reminders, printable PDF reminder cards, and additional lighthearted "Scary Internet Videos“ that can be delivered on a public TV display or an intranet, for example. These assets can be used as part of an internal marketing campaign to enable organizations to keep security awareness topics at the forefront of company culture, regularly reminding employees of security best practices.
