People Matter: Why people must be part of the solution

Our people are central to the success of any organisation.

We have known for years that hackers target people before technology. For just as long, we have been repeating the mantra that a vigilant, cyber risk-aware workforce is our main defence against cyber-criminals. Yet despite all our efforts, we have still not cracked the problem.

Too many organisations still either ignore the ‘human factor’ in organisational resilience or apply out-dated or compliance, ’tickbox’ approaches to training their employees.

We need a fresh look.

This short panel discussion will discuss behavioural science and innovation that can transform the way organisations influence and sustain stronger security behaviours across their workforce.
