Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit 2024: HRM Insights for Cybersecurity Resilience

The Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit 2024, held in National Harbor, MD, brought tech professionals together to navigate the complex digital landscape of cybersecurity.

Key highlights included discussions on evolving security strategies, leveraging generative AI, and enhancing risk management. A notable focus was on human risk, with sessions like “Click Rate or Executive Clickbait?” and “Security Awareness Is Dead!

Now What?” addressing how to measure and improve security behavior and culture. Despite the rich content, these sessions faced low attendance, prompting informal attendee discussions about the pressing issue of engagement in security awareness.

Attendee insights revealed that while compliance remains a primary driver for security awareness programs, deeper goals like imparting knowledge and shifting company culture are gaining traction. However, traditional methods often fall short in engagement, leading to a “checklist” mentality that hinders genuine behavior change.

The solution?

Tailored, role-specific training that is short, interactive, and tied to real-world incidents. Gamification and relevance to personal life also emerged as effective strategies. By focusing on micro-learning and delivering timely, relevant content, organizations can foster a culture of security that resonates with employees and drives meaningful risk awareness.
