Why Read This Report

The human element is a critical aspect of any security program, yet awareness initiatives are sporadic, with minimal, uninspired investment. Thus, easily avoided human mistakes too often render technical controls useless. To avoid this scenario, reevaluate the way you address and influence your workforce, and turn this vulnerability into a security asset. This report takes lessons from CISOs, training firms, and communications experts to describe an approach to what has too long been a stale practice — a new way security pros can engage the human firewall.
