Can security awareness keep up with the attackers?

  • With account takeover replacing phishing as the most common attack vector, how should security awareness training adapt?
  • Avoiding a static awareness programme and delivering constant education and training
  • How is your security awareness training changing to meet the needs of a hybrid workforce?

Lauren Zink, Security Training and Awareness programme manager, Oportun

I am an industry recognized information security professional that loves to focus on the human aspect of security. In 2019 I was selected as Twenty under 40 winner for YStark. I received the Cyber Educator of the Year award in 2018 and was selected as an Influential Woman in Tech by Crain’s Cleveland in 2018. I have developed, marketed and continually grown global programs that in turn generated overall cultural change and awareness. I have the privilege of also being a LinkedIn Learning cyber security author and have been published in numerous industry magazines and websites. I enjoy giving back to the security community through various mentoring and volunteer opportunities. I thoroughly enjoy all aspects of both logical and physical security and educating employees on their importance. My current role affords me the opportunity to use my creativity, public speaking and communications skills to better the security posture at my company.

Ceri Jones, Technology Security Manager, NatWest

• Experienced Cyber Security researcher.
• Specialising in People Centred Security and Security Awareness for over 9yrs
• Focus on positive security

I enjoy thinking creatively about ways to engage with people about their security needs. Instead of working from the assumption of knowing what is best for people, to work with them to understand their context and working practices. To help develop ways to bring security to people in a positive way, instead of forcing it upon them.

For example using stories, images, and positive language to try frame security differently.

Talking about what is possible to do. To make security more approachable, conscious and considerate. But mainly to challenge assumptions of security professionals when it comes to working with people.

Sarah Janes, Behaviour and culture specialist, Layer8

Straight from school to BT’s Security Awareness Team I found out pretty early on that the people side of security was what I was interested in. By the time I was 21 I was running the team, and learning what it was like to try and get budget and buy-in for the people side of security. Which is where my incessant drive for improving how we measure behaviour change comes from.

Between then and now – Graduating with a 1st in Professional Communications whilst working full time and competing for the UK in Age-Group Triathlon, becoming a parent, being a Trustee for a local charity, working in small organisations, delivering change programmes to FTSE100 clients – helped me do the toughest thing yet! The decision to start Layer 8!

And I do it because I truly believe in people, and that a future exists where we’re on par, or even ahead of the hackers. I believe each and every one of us has the power and the freedom to make change happen and that’s a life lesson I especially want to pass on to my daughter.

Expertise in people security:

  • Creating people strategies woven into business strategy
  • Supporting managers to get security on Board agenda
  • Measure behavioural change and impact on risk
  • Creating security awareness/behaviour and culture programmes
  • Speaking on cyber/people security
Greg Keller, Chief Technology Officer, JumpCloud

A start-up veteran and experienced executive with a proven track record of building new high-scale businesses and strong product teams while delivering profitable growth.

-Software. Teams. Companies.-
From start-ups to great teams to software products, I have enjoyed building lots of things…and often from virtually nothing to start with. True ‘barn-raising’ experiences should be had by every software professional in their career to understand how it all comes together and grows. 

-Product Management and Product Marketing DNA-
I’ve heard a couple of mantras on the concept but to me product management boils down to “supplying customer demands profitably”. For two decades I’ve enjoyed solving tough problems faced by my customers and rallying teams to get it all done, on time and with super high quality is the rush. 

-Technology Evangelism and Speaking-
I’ve been fortunate to have traveled the globe speaking about technology. If I am intellectually curious about a problem, it simply has to be digested, vetted and expressed…and most often this occurs in front of audiences with equally curious technologists.

-Executive and Team Management-
I don’t make it a mission to climb ladders. Never have. I just talk to people the way I would like to be talked to and it seems to end up sending people off in the right directions to execute and get it done. Leadership is empowering those you manage and then you get out of their way. This always ends up helping to steer the company up and to the right.

-Making my ‘product users’ into ‘product champions‘-
The joy of my life. Communing in person with your market and user base to listen and see first hand what they need, how they use your product and what they think could improve their efficiency using it, is the only path to truly building a great solution.
