Abstract : The role of the security educator as proponent of security awareness in a work-place environment that includes advanced automated systems is constantly expanding. As we come to depend more and more on electronic storage, processing, and transmission of information, members of our employee populations, without exception, must be informed about the unique threats and security safeguards that apply to the modern workplace. The two feature articles that appear in this issue of the Bulletin have been selected because they offer useful ideas and factual information that you might include in a security educational program. The first of these, 'Defining the Threat to Information Systems,' could serve as the basis for a briefing or newsletter feature on this subject. In either form, of course, it should be edited, supplemented, and other wise 'tailored'to meet the needs of your organization.
