The Human Factor: Why people are the main key to cybersecurity?

When it comes to cybersecurity, many people focus on red/blue teams and technical measures such as servers, firewalls, encryption, and intrusion prevention systems. However, one crucial factor that is often overlooked is the human factor. All of these technical measures will count for nothing when it comes to matter of insider threats. Even the most robust cybersecurity measures can be rendered ineffective by social engineering threats.

In this keynote, I will present several use cases to demonstrate why it is essential to consider the human factor in any organization’s cyber threat landscape.

No Experience Needed - Addressing the Global Cybersecurity Workforce Gap by Expanding Career Pathways

The 2023 Cybersecurity Workforce Study identifies a daunting 4 million-person workforce gap. This shortfall in qualified candidates hampers industry growth. To tackle this challenge, the industry must broaden its recruitment scope, targeting individuals with potential to learn, including those from diverse backgrounds like business, arts, or engineering. Cultivating entry-level opportunities for students, young professionals, and career changers is vital for industry expansion. However, assessing cybersecurity aptitude in candidates without direct experience poses a challenge. Traditionally, the industry has lacked accessible entry points for newcomers.
