SPEAKER'S TOPIC: "Information Security Education Relationships on Incidents and Preventions"
ABSTRACT: The role of education in information security is to reduce risk, reduce incidents, and increase preventive actions.

An interesting find was the more preventative behavior, the more security incidents occurred. The discussion section explores the possible whys.
