TOPIC:Security Awareness programs: Why they are important and how to start one for free
PRESENTER: Anthony Green (Manager, Security Operations and Compliance – CPA BC)


Anthony has provided thousands of staff with security awareness training and during this webinar, he will talk a little bit about what he learned and how anybody can implement a security awareness program.

The first half of the presentation will start by explaining what a Security Awareness program entails and why it is essential to an organization. This will be followed up by some tips and processes recommended to be implemented company wide before implementing a program.

The second half of the presentation will be a lot more practical as we will go over some free tools that anybody can use to begin building a security awareness program for free now! E.g. Phishing Simulation, Phish Button, Email Awareness Campaigns, etc.


Anthony Green is currently the Manager of Security Operations and Compliance Manager (MSOC) at Chartered Professional Accountants of British Columbia.

Prior to joining CPABC, Anthony led PCI compliance as a Security Analyst for one of Western Canada’s largest retailers – London Drugs. Anthony has also been elected to serve as the President for the ISACA Vancouver Chapter after previously serving as Vice-President and Director of Communications.

In the evenings Anthony teaches the Cyber Security Micro-Credential at UBC and Security Fundamentals at VCC.

Anthony is also a co-founder of Tracer Digital, a Vancouver-based firm that aids small businesses in securing and marketing their online presence.

Anthony is very enthusiastic about giving back to the local Information Security community by mentoring young graduates and teaching local small businesses the fundamentals of cybersecurity they would otherwise not have been exposed to. Anthony curates cybersecurity resources to the general public through the CPA BCs newsroom with content such as cyber security articles and podcasts with local security leaders.
