The Information Security Awareness Forum was founded by the U.K. chapter of the Information Systems Security Association in 2008. Its objective is to create a co-ordinated cross-industry/cross-institution approach for delivering security awareness messages to large corporations, small and medium enterprises, and individuals. Membership of the forum comprises industry bodies and professional organizations that have a specific interest in promoting security awareness.
The forum is not seeking to "reinvent the wheel." There already exists a lot of awareness materials for individuals as well as organizations. However there has been a lack of co-ordination, resulting in overlaps and gaps, too. The forum brings together interested parties to work together to remove some of the overlaps, and to partner with organizations to fill some of the gaps.
