The dictionary defines ‘cybersecurity’ as “measures taken to protect a computer or computer system against unauthorized access or attack.” There is no mention of people or humans. Tessian’s CEO Tim Sadler speaks to Bruce Hallas –  an advocate, trainer and consultant in information security awareness, behavior and culture – about why this needs to change.

With so much to cover, Bruce drills down into why the cybersecurity industry needs to open its arms to other areas of expertise, beyond just those with purely technical backgrounds, in order to understand people, their behaviors and their cultures. Only then, he says, can organizations start to address the human factor in cybersecurity and get ahead of the cybercriminals.

You can also listen to Bruce’s podcast – Rethinking The Human Factor – and follow his work and research on Twitter.
