Addressing the Human Element in Cybersecurity Awareness Month
Theme for 2022 programs shares cyberconIQ’s more “personal approach”
Since it’s declaration by the US Federal government in 2004, and with the support of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCA), Cybersecurity Awareness Month has lead a collaborative effort between government and industry to raise awareness nationally and internationally. As a champion of these programs in the past, cyberconIQ shares the urgency and importance of sharing key information to help organizations and individuals better protect themselves online.
A key difference this year is the alignment of these organizations’ messaging on how the ‘Human’ element is a critical component of any organizations cybersecurity strategy. With over 82% of cyber breaches involving a human factor, it reinforces the need to address how ‘people’ can be a part of the solution and not the problem.
cyberconIQ was founded with the knowledge that technical approaches to cybersecurity alone do not address these prevalent issues we face today. With years of research and development with financial industry leaders, Dr. James Norrie discovered that our foundational CYBERology™ approach – the intersection of cybersecurity and psychology – would improve security outcomes and would advance the risk and compliance culture within organizations world-wide. With proven results that are 8 – 10x more effective than generic training alternatives, cyberconIQ’s Human Defense Platform measurably reduces the risk of a human-factors cybersecurity breach or data leak.
