User Awareness Challenges in Cyber Security
- TYPE: Keynote DATE: Tuesday, June 02, 2020 TIME: 13:20-13:40
Cyber Security traditionally has been seen as the domain of Technology, with an expectation that the solution has also to be provided by IT – and we happily accepted this challenge and delivered with numerous Software and Hardware solutions, design and development principles, policies and process controls.
However, as most successful cyber-attacks in recent time have started by targeting users (with phishing emails or social engineering), raising awareness of their role in mitigating cyber risks is even more important than just a technical solution.
This short presentation will highlight ideas and strategies but also potential pitfalls in delivery of awareness programs and trainings to turn your users into the most important line of defence in cyber security.
