Speakers panel human risk factors in cybersecurity webinar

Lots of things make people more or less susceptible to cyberattacks.

Cybersecurity practitioners work hard to influence those things to bring down the risk. If you’re reading this, you’re probably doing this.

Traditionally, the focus has been on technical controls, and training. But these are just two bricks in the wall, not the wall itself.

To handle the threats of today’s landscape, addressing the human risk elements of security is a must. In most organizations it’s either happening too slowly—or not happening at all.

It’s all down to a misunderstanding. A belief that beyond tech, there’s only knowledge.

There is so much more to it!

Recent CybSafe analysis suggests there are in fact 8 primary human cyber risk factors. This webinar digs into what they are, what they look like, and how security teams can use them to better understand and reduce people-related security risk.
