CybSafe and Gartner have collaborated to bring you the latest research into security awareness, security behavior and culture, human factors, and human cyber risk. 

Every few weeks, we’ll be sitting down to dissect a piece of research with an industry professional.

Now, it’s time to shine the spotlight on a particularly powerful piece of research: “Security Awareness Efforts Fall Short! Now What? (Survey Results Analysis)”.

Report overview

This report examines how CISOs and their teams approach — and plan to advance — their security awareness programs.

Here are some of the most important findings:

Security awareness programs are failing at behavior management

Awareness programs are lean — with low staffing and funding

Cybersecurity leaders hesitate to invest more in awareness

Awareness programs struggle to measure success


So, what does this mean for you?

The gap between ambition and reality is not surprising. It means that if you’re serious about reducing human risk, you need to think carefully about how you’re deploying your limited resources, with a focus on impact over activity.
