How much does attitude impact behaviour — and increase cyber security risk?
People – yes, we pesky human beings – are widely recognised as one of the most critical components of cyber resilience and risk reduction. But one of the least understood areas is that of security behaviours and attitudes. Specifically, the gap or disconnect between knowledge and action.
The National Cybersecurity Alliance and CybSafe have formed a multi-year research partnership to better understand and share insight into user security attitudes and behaviours.
The second annual Cybersecurity Attitudes and Behaviors Report will be released during October – Cybersecurity Awareness Month, but you can watch now for an exclusive sneak peek into key insights from the report’s findings.
This research report series is the first of its kind and seeks to examine cybersecurity attitudes and behaviours of the general public, shedding light on one of the most important aspects of cyber risk – the human factor.
This presentation provided an exclusive examination into key insights from the report’s findings, and explored how this body of research supports a targeted approach to human cyber risk management. We also saw how these trends in core behaviours can help us tailor our security awareness efforts.
