Human behavior as a crucial part of cybersecurity isn’t a new idea. We’ve known for some time that human factors are a big part of our risk –currently the biggest risk. Verizon 2021 DBIR data show that nearly 90% of breaches involve a human element. When combined with increases in cybersecurity expenditure year after year, we call that the Cybersecurity Paradox

Despite the myriad “Zero-Trust-in-a-box” solutions, one-size-fits-all isn’t the answer but making human behavior a part of your strategy probably is. Watch this on-demand webinar to learn how leading global organizations are addressing these challenges and hear insights and perspectives from a distinguished panel of security experts.
