Cryptographer Bruce Schneier once said, "only amateurs attack machines, professionals target people" and yet how far should we be blaming humans for the breakdown of our cyber security?
Many organisations push out some sort of security awareness training, simulated phishing emails, or bright, amusing posters relaying the importance of cyber security – but how effective are these traditional methods? Or could they, in fact, be doing more harm than good when it comes to building a solid relationship between the workforce and security teams?
Flavius explains why we should be reframing the conversation around what is expected from humans and why we need to be talking about "managing human risk" rather than "behavioural change". We also explore what the role of the CISO should be and how the public and private sectors can work better together.
