Today's cyber criminals have discovered that the fastest and easiest pathway to your digital assets is through your users. It doesn't have to be this way - or at least it should be a lot harder! This session will focus on the evidence-based best practices from the social sciences that can help us transform our user communities from easy targets to resilient allies in our ongoing battle to protect our data and systems from cyber attacks. In this session we will share the foundations of our cyber-mindfulness training model, explain how we developed and implemented our Awareness-Agency-Action engagement practices and discuss examples and best practices for successfully designing, delivering and sustaining an on-going education campaign.
