Securing the User: Winning Hearts & Minds to Drive Cyber Secure Behavior

Despite the focus on user security, information security professionals are still grappling with how to engage people effectively. Having an awareness programme is the first step, but awareness doesn’t guarantee secure behavior.

As organizations become increasingly connected, even educated users are tempted to deliberately bypass security controls in the interests of efficiency. Humans are only human and mistakes give rise to the accidental insider. So how do information security professionals build a positive security culture within their organization?

  • Understand the drivers of insecure behavior and how to influence that behavior
  • Identify effective strategies to raise awareness and change behavior
  • Develop key metrics to measure the effectiveness of your security awareness program
  • Implement best tactics to achieve board-level buy-in to gain investment for your security awareness and engagement program
