Using the Behavioral Science Model to Influence Employee Security Behaviors
Lisa Plaggemier, Executive Director, National Cybersecurity Alliance + Joe Leonard, CTO, GuidePoint Security
About this talk
Strengthening the human aspect in the protection of your organization’s security environment should be an ongoing effort for any size organization. Cybercriminals will continue to exploit network vulnerabilities, but understanding the psychology and behavior of your internal staff is key to addressing the relentless sophistication of cyberattacks.
We’re kicking off Cybersecurity Awareness Month with a live talk featuring Executive Director of the National Cybersecurity Alliance [NCA], Lisa Plaggemier and CTO at GuidePoint Security, Joe Leonard. Our experts will explore key cybersecurity constructs relevant to employee behavior gathered from a recent NCA behavioral research report, Oh Behave! 2022.
Topics will include:
• Insight into the public’s attitudes and beliefs about security
• How the COM-B behavioral science applies to the cybersecurity domain
• How to use empowerment and positivity rather than fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) to influence
better employee security behaviors
• Using the research findings as a prologue for reducing risk
Join us for this unique opportunity to hear from leaders in our IT Security industry.
