Around 95 per cent of security breaches are the direct responsibility of human error. From stolen laptops to clicking malicious links, people are creatures of habit and muscle memory, and are resistant to change in their daily lives.
To make matters worse, humans sitting on the other side of the fence are hell-bent on capitalising on these everyday weaknesses themselves, turning the cyber security landscape into one of sophisticated, digitally-supported confidence tricks, as humans try to dupe humans into parting with data, credentials and even their entire identities.
Security culture now needs to look further afield than simply relying on firewalls, or even more advanced ‘next generation’ cyber security platforms. CISOs and training teams now need to look more closely at how human beings are taught to live effective security-aware lives on a daily basis during their work – in the office, at home, or on the train.
This websem will look into the current ‘state of the nation’ of attitudes, drives and progress in cyber security training in order to build a discussion about how changes can be enacted.
