Culture – that combination of people, values, and processes – plays a far larger role in cybersecurity and resiliency than technology alone. Building a cyber resilient culture is critical to reducing risk and improving the odds of successfully dealing with cyber incidents.
Building a cyber resilient culture takes more than just annual awareness training. It takes a deliberate program that successfully leverages platforms, content and senior leadership support to explain the why, not just the what of cybersecurity. It also takes a program designed to change individual and organizational risky behaviours, an approach the calls for a robust change management component to supplement awareness and education efforts.
