You know that “security awareness” is key to a comprehensive security strategy. But just because someone is aware doesn’t mean they care. So how can you design programs that work with, rather than against, human nature? Here’s the great news. Creating a security awareness strategy that not only educates but reinforces good behaviors can be achieved and we’ll show you how.
This presentation will take a deep (and practical) dive into:
- How to understand and design for behavioral segments
- How to successfully debug bad behaviors
- How to influence motivation in three different ways
- And why it is important to live your awareness program through the eyes of your audience
