Closing the ‘human factor’ gap
Cyber security has become one of the most significant business risks faced by organisations today. Recent developments in the social media and health sectors underpin that this is also a risk of major concern to consumers. Recent reviews by the Australian National Audit Office and NIST have highlighted that the conventional guidance provided to date is insufficient for organisations to adequately protect their brand and their assets.
The “human factor”, defined by an effective security culture has been missing or understated by cyber risk management frameworks to date. Our presentation will emphasise the importance of developing an effective cyber security culture supported by evidence, and will also outline a risk management framework that will enable an organisation to evaluate how well it is prepared to defend and recover from a cyber-attack.
