Being a victim of a cyber-attack is a question of when and not if. The recent WannaCry cyber-attack that affected thousands of organizations around the world, including the NHS, and the attack on University College London this month illustrates just how easy it is to successfully target an organization by playing on our human vulnerabilities.

The stark reality however is that 90% of cyber-attacks succeed because of human error – the unwitting actions of any member of staff, irrespective of their role or seniority. Your resilience to cyber-attacks is fundamentally as much about your people and their behaviours as it is about technology.

Protecting your reputation, competitive advantage and operational capabilities from cyber-attack is now ‘business as usual’ for many organizations. Everyone in your organisation has a specific and vital part to play in protecting your most valuable and precious information.

Our people and their behaviours must sit at the heart of any effective cyber resilience response. But this requires a balanced and collaborative approach across the entire organisation – embedding the awareness, insight and skills that will make you more effective in mitigating the cyber-risks you face. 

So how can you develop, embed and sustain the resilient behaviours you require across your workforce?

In this webinar Nick Wilding, General Manager, Cyber Resilience, AXELOS Global Best Practice and Jonathan Reuvid, Editor of ‘Managing Cybersecurity Risk: How Directors and Corporate Officers can protect their businesses’ will discuss:

  • The people vulnerability – the stories and the facts
  • Why typical cyber security awareness training methods are failing us
  • What good cyber resilience can look like
  • The principles and benefits of adopting a new approach to behaviour change
  • What your organization can to do to help prepare, prevent, protect and respond to the cyber risks you face.

The webinar is designed for everyone in the organization from leaders and managers in Information Security, HR, Learning and Development, Governance, Risk and Compliance to those on your ‘frontline’.
