WATCH recording of  Cybersecurity Culture”.

With the increased use of digital technologies, remote working, the gig economy, systems with greater connectivity, and the collection of ever more valuable data assets the likely hood of compromise through cyber-attacks is higher than ever. 

In the face of this increasing risk profile, many organisations still mistakenly believe that mitigation comes through heavy investment in security technology defences. In fact, this does little to change security culture, worse still it can create an unhealthy level of complacency.

Leading CISOs understand that the security behaviours of individual employees are heavily influenced by the prevailing security culture of the organisation as a whole. How can leaders pro-actively shape their organisation’s security culture and values in order to sustainably change behaviours on a day-to-day basis?

To address these problems, OutThink is actively engaged in building a ‘Framework for the Management of Human Risk in Cyber Security’ which helps organisations understand that creating a strong healthy cyber-security culture is not simply about patching technology and processes. In fact, it is about patching the human brain. 

On this topic, we hosted our latest webinar on May 27th, 2021 where our guest speakers Illyas Kooliyankal, CISO, Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank, and Vuk Sajinovic, Senior ISO, European Investment Bank shared their views on how to create, develop and maintain a risk-aware cybersecurity culture.
