How To Join

We take security awareness seriously

IASAP is dedicated to the exchange of best practices for elevating employee awareness and execution of appropriate security behaviors at all levels within our member organizations. Our goal is achieved through collaboration, benchmarking and an NDA-trusted network of peer organizations. Most member participants are responsible for managing and/or executing their awareness programs. IASAP was formed in 2012 by members of the former CSI Security Awareness Peer Group, formed in 2003.


Membership has helped me become more effective in reaching my audience and improving my company’s security posture.

But the key feature is the confidence I have in the group: we are there to share insights and challenges, and to help each other make our programs the best they can be.”
