What's the difference between "user behavior" and "consumer behavior"? Nothing.
I drew on years of experience in global marketing and advertising to "sell" employees, partners, and clients on improving their security habits. Created awareness content and training programs tailored to people's roles, the corporate culture, and the human attention span. Advocated for security and transparency, creating plain talk communications for sales, support, and clients.
