12:30 PM Empowering Employees to Combat Cyber Crime

Cyber criminals continue to successfully and consistently exploit human nature to accomplish their goals. People remain the final point of defense between sophisticated cyber attacks and critical systems, data, trade secrets and customer information. Effective security awareness programs go beyond compliance and change behavior and attitudes towards security.

Changing the perception of security from the department of ‘no’ to the department of how, such as how to safely navigate social networks is key.

This session will provide practical advice to help the enterprise leverage effective security awareness and behavior management practices to strengthen the human element of security.

•Identifying and mitigating the relevant human risks to your organization

•Utilizing a variety of awareness strategies

•Emerging attack trends and techniques

•Sustaining security awareness programs over the long haul to reflect changes in culture, content and communications
