About the author
From 1999 to 2006, Sean designed and implemented the information security awareness program at Bank of America. His approach to changing a corporate culture to one that valued safeguarding customer, employee, business and company sensitive information was at that time innovative and questioned by traditional practitioners. Today, his concepts are common practice in many corporations. "A successful information security awareness program is a marketing program that provides the same information seven times, seven different ways over time. That is what reinforces the principles that become part of a company's values," says Sean. Sean's career has taken him around the world. He has worked with some exceptional people, leaders in their field, who have taught him, as he says" "More than one could ever expect, and opened doors that I could have never imagined. To that I remain forever grateful. Sean is a recognized author and a popular speaker in the field of Information Security Awareness and Personal Development.
