The intersection between technology and human security is a difficult challenge for any organization to tackle. No matter how much security technology we purchase, we still face a fundamental security problem: people. Cyber criminals are rapidly evolving their techniques and tactics to even greater levels of sophistication with social engineering scams and email-based attacks. It is no wonder that people are often considered the weakest link. It’s time to get practical advice on how to make both security and technology work with (rather than against) human nature to help reduce technology friction and simultaneously raise the security posture and resilience of the organization.
