Tackling Human Error: Beyond Security Awareness

05 Jun 2018, 10:25 - 10:40

Cyber Innovation Showcase

Human error is by far the most prevalent cause of security breaches – but what can we do against such a varied and evasive threat? By unpacking a series of case-studies we will look at different techniques to manage and change insecure behaviours. This session will cover how best to pitch your security awareness campaign; what exactly motivates and drives behavioural change across an organisation; and other tools security managers can implement to protect their users. We will also examine the effect of GDPR on staff education and awareness.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Learn how to protect your organisation from human error
  2. Find out what is required to make a security awareness campaign work
  3. Hear research into what best motivates secure behaviour
  4. Gain real case-studies to argue your case to your stakeholders
  5. See how you can turn your staff into an effective security workforce
