Topic Abstract: Effectively changing user behavior and creating good habits in the workplace is not as simple as requiring your employees to watch a ‘one-size-fits-all’ video in order to check the box on compliance. If companies sincerely want to be secure, then they need to foster a security culture from the top down. Everyone in the organization needs to understand ‘why’ and what is at risk, before attempting to change their habits.
The presentation will discuss past training methods, current and future options in the market, why they do or don’t work and what companies need to think about in order to significantly make a change in their security culture.
Part security, part psychology, and lots of amusing and entertaining anecdotes will actually keep people entertained and engaged. The goal is to bring back ideas, concepts and a plan for improving every company’s security posture.
