Please join us on Friday, September 11th, 2020 at 10 AM PT/1 PM ET for “Hacking the Human: An hour of critical thinking on the additional benefits of securing people”.


So much of securing humans is focused around preventing users to click on things, spotting social engineering, and not letting them get duped. What if we expand our view of people-based security beyond the task of preventing phishing and ransomware? What other security, compliance, and competitive business advantages could we achieve with a people-focused security methodology?

Joining David Spark (@dspark), producer of CISO Series in this discussion will be:

In preparation for the event, think about the following:

  • What is the current model of people-based security?
  • What can the spectrum of people-based security include that it’s currently not including?
  • People security is change management. What are techniques that do work to actually change behavior?
  • Where can compliance benefit from a people-focused security solution?
  • Where can the business be more competitive with a people-focused security solution?
