Measurable cyber security culture
“Everyone has the right to be free from anxiety. Everyone has the right to feel secure.“
Security at its core is a feeling. Here’s how we drive behaviour change within the organisation:
1. We identify kill-chain breaking behaviours.
2. We measure those behaviours transparently by coming up with metrics that are rooted in those real-world attacks.
3. We use cyber security awareness to explain “why”.
In order to change behaviours for real, knowledge, contemplation, action, and maintenance should come hand-in-hand, which is what Verizon Media is aiming to develop.
