Getting Past Impossible: The Human Factors of Cybersecurity.

Presented by

Dr. Margaret Cunningham, Forcepoint | Dr. Calvin Nobles, Illinois Tech College of Computing

About this talk

Organizations continue to invest in technology solutions time and time again, yet cyber criminals and nation states continue to break through our defenses. That’s because the emphasis has been on approaches that are too cut-and-dried around indicators of compromise. Margaret Cunningham, principal research scientist on human behavior at Forcepoint, and Calvin Nobles, chair and associate professor of information and management at Illinois Tech College of Computing, know it is time to address cybersecurity from a new angle: human behavior. People are integral at every level of a company, yet are often overlooked as the foundation of an effective cybersecurity posture. Human Factors Engineering is the practice of applying science to optimize human behaviors in the work environment, creating a more effective and holistic approach to cybersecurity. Join us to learn: - How to educate business executives and decision makers on human behaviors - Recognizing the importance of human factors at every level of a company - How the science of human behavior allows us to predict mistakes that may weaken our systems - How to create the security framework that addresses human behavior, especially in new remote workspaces created by the pandemic
