Organizations have traditionally invested most of their security in technology, with little effort in protecting their employees. As a result, many attackers today target the weakest link, the human. Awareness, not just technology, has become key to reducing risk and remaining compliant. This high-level talk designed for management explains why humans are so vulnerable, how they are being actively exploited and what organizations can do about it.
Key points include:
-How humans are nothing more than another type of operating system, albeit a highly vulnerable one
-Why humans are so bad at judging risk and how attackers exploit these vulnerabilities
- How an effective awareness program patches these vulnerabilities and reduces risk.
- How to develop a modular and flexible program that reach multi-cultures.
- How to create and effectively use metrics.
