The Human Fix to Human Risk™ - 5 Steps to Masterminding an Effective Security Awareness Program so employees become part of your defense and protect your organization from cyber attacks
Cyber attackers succeed 99 per cent of the time when they use human weakness as a vector for breaking into corporate systems to access sensitive data. This is the Human Risk. While organizations continue to invest in technology and processes to counter cyberattacks, the most effective way to reduce human risk is to change behavior and instill a security culture in your organization with an effective security awareness program - also known as The Human Fix.
Deploying a security awareness program across an organization is a complex effort. To change behavior and build a security culture, CISOs should treat security awareness like an ongoing program, carefully planned based on the organization's specific needs and objectives. CISOs and security awareness teams can only achieve this by applying a framework - an ongoing methodical approach consisting of five steps: Analyze / Plan / Deploy / Measure / Optimize.
"The Human Fix to Human Risk™has been written with CISOs and security awareness teams in mind and provides clear insight on how to manage an ongoing security awareness program by leveraging the security awareness 5-step framework," said Lise Lapointe, author of The Human Fix to Human Risk™. "Most organizations skip Steps 1 (Analyze) and 2 (Plan) and begin their security awareness program at Step 3 (Deploy), with little results. This 5-step framework has helped over a thousand organizations successfully change behaviors, drastically reduce human risk and develop cyber security reflexes."
The security awareness evidence-based 5-step framework is further described in Lise Lapointe's book, The Human Fix to Human Risk™. It is the essential guide for CISOs and all security awareness professionals and illustrates each step of the framework in detail and outlines how to mastermind an effective security awareness program leveraging best practices, case studies and worksheets. Additional details can be found here.
