IT security departments are no longer just responsible for securing digital assets and appliances. They must - with equal priority - help create a secure environment that inspires productivity and empowers employees to innovate.

In this talk, we discuss challenges faced by large enterprises around embracing the Human Factor (security awareness, phishing / social engineering, password hygiene/policies, etc.). We also share insights into how key security indicators such as overall vulnerability levels and basic security hygiene can be measured and compared across organizations, industries, and countries.

We introduce our approach to prioritizing IT security initiatives that have the most valuable immediate impact on hackability and discuss some common mistakes that can be easily fixed at little or no cost
