Cyber Risk Wednesday: The Human Element of Cybersecurity

November 14, 2018 - 12:00 pm

1030 15th Street Northwest, 12th Floor
Washington, DC
In spite of defensive efforts, breaches persist, becoming greater, costlier, and increasingly critical. Defenders and adversaries are caught in fierce, persistent engagement where an organization’s expenditures are not an indicator of whether they are truly secure. While defenders often view cybersecurity as a technical issue in need of a technical solution, adversaries exploit human nature and errors, as dependable and low-cost methods to compromise a defender’s system. The rapid evolution of adversary technology and methods make it challenging to focus on the human behind the attack, however, what remains constant is the human element of the adversary.


Join us for a conversation on the incorporation of the human element into cyber defensive efforts, development of organizational cybersecurity culture and actionable short and long-term solutions to reduce cybersecurity risk.
