Building a Security Culture

Most successful cyber security incidents involve a human at your business -- being manipulated, making an honest mistake, or deliberately taking malicious action. So to defend your organization from any cyber threat, all your users must be ever-vigilant: from your app developers to your accountants, from the CEO to the interns. So how do you build a business-wide culture that values security? How do you not only properly educate users on the threats, but make them care about them? In this webinar, learn the elements of a security culture, how to build one at your organization, and how to know it’s working.
