Security Awareness: Securing the Human Layer

Presented by

Roger Grimes, Scott Lowe

About this talk

It’s common knowledge that humans are the leading cause of IT security incidents. Whether accidental or intentional, a human-centric root cause lies at the center of literally every security incident. You can’t just eliminate all the humans, so security professionals are left to find reasonable measures to ensure that the human element of their organizations can act as a bulwark of security rather than as a catalyst for disaster. This is easier said than done and requires constant vigilance. Human security is not a “one and done” effort. It’s an ongoing process often including automated security awareness training and simulated phishing. How do you make it happen? What steps can you take to get there? What are the real problems that need to be solved? Most importantly, do your employees really understand their critical role in protecting your organization?
