ISMG’s Executive Roundtables focus on specific challenges being faced by information security executives in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Moderated by one of ISMG’s Executive Editors and a guest industry expert, Roundtables give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal setting, from which you will emerge with new ideas and solutions you can immediately put to work to improve your own organization’s defensive posture.
How to Turn Your End User into Your Friend User and Reduce Your Biggest Risk Vector
According to research from Kaspersky Lab, 42 percent of companies say that the single largest loss of confidential data loss is by employees. The accidentally careless employees are the single biggest cause of incidents involving data loss in almost 25 percent of all breaches.
Given that employees are the first line of defense against socially-engineered schemes such as account takeover, new account fraud and other crimes, doesn’t it make sense to train your end users to support your security efforts – not just hinder them?
If you’re looking for new perspectives on these questions, then join Tom Field for an exclusive roundtable discussion where attendees will tackle such topics as:
- Why do so many end user training efforts fall flat?
- What are some effective new ways to utilize technology to train employees?
- What are solid use cases for how to turn the adversarial end user relationship into a “friend user” partnership?
- How can we stop blaming the customer?
