The 2-day Security Awareness class for Information Workers and 2-day Security Awareness class for Information Technology workers use the same principle materials but are delivered at different technical levels.
Information Workers are defined as any employees that use the organization’s IT resources. These users are often referred to as “end users” or “power users”, along with their managers and organization officers.
Information Technology Workers are defined as employees that have technical experience in some discipline such as database administration, network administration, developers, etc.

Each class incorporates not only the latest information available in the cybersecurity field but also employees scientific adult learning and neuroscience principles to not only make learning more effective but also to better combat social engineering exploits.
