Services Cybersecurity Human-Centric Cybersecurity
Human-centric cybersecurity (HCCS) is the ‘other half’ of the data security equation for which few of your competitors know of or pay attention to.
Nine out of ten cyber-attacks are due to human error. The best designed technology in the world can’t stop your staff putting their passwords on a sticky note on the side of their computer screen. It takes education and training to help them become the first line defence your business needs against cybersecurity breaches.
The good news is, the behavioural changes HCCS facilitate outlast any technology, making it the most durable, cost-effective way to keep your business data safer.
Our 460degree HCCS Experts leverage technology, behavioural science and specialised tools and techniques to shine a light through the gaps in your cybersecurity defences. By digging into the rich bodies of data your business has generated around your people, technology, culture and organisational structure, we spot any weaknesses and uncover valuable insights to help you achieve your cybersecurity goals.
Whether you need to meet regulatory or compliance obligations, build enhanced awareness of emerging cyber threats or address the specific challenges your business faces, or are seeking a unique competitive advantage, our cybersecurity Experts are ready to help.
Setting aside the hype and hysteria, watch our panellists as they interrogate AI’s implications for cyber threats and cybersecurity, focusing on providing practical strategies and tactics suitable for building cyber resilience.
When human error accounts for up to 95% of data breaches, technology clearly isn’t the problem. We are. In this […]
Human-Centric Cybersecurity Champion, Dr Patrick Scolyer-Gray, shares his knowledge and experience on all aspects of cybersecurity.
It’s common knowledge that organisations of all sizes face numerous and formidable cyber-threat actors, and we certainly seem to hear plenty about them: Cyber-criminals or nation-state actors that are bankrolled by foreign governments. However, we focus on these threats at the expense of others to our peril. With that in mind, let’s talk about insider threats.
The discussion so far has dovetailed into an argument for how techno-centric and HCCS can (and do) work together to resist and repel cybercrime, and although it is great to have a strategy for what we need to do, we need to remain cognisant of the sobering reality of our predicament: The ransomware crisis is far beyond the scope and capabilities of any single company or organisation.
In my last article, I made the argument that Human Centric Cybersecurity (HCCS) and conventional technical elements of cybersecurity need to work together as a unified front when combating ransomware. So, how does that work in practice when applied to combating ransomware?
As organisations around the world work to accommodate for problems for the crisis at hand, the need for higher degrees of collaboration, communication and innovation have become a burning requirement for many.
Having recently covered the basics on ransomware and why it’s a clear and present danger, it’s time to look at the limitations of what has been the traditional approach used to try and resolve these issues.
When we hear about companies suffering from ransomware attacks, we often think about the impact on the business, and sometimes even the consequences for society. However, in the midst of all the lamenting and impotent rage we often fail to think about how and why the attacks happened in the first place.
Cybercrime has long been the stuff of the Internet’s collective cultural imagination; a well-worn stereotype of the hooded figure hunched over a keyboard. It might sound dramatic but make no mistake; ransomware attacks have grown in scale and frequency to a point where they now threaten the safety and wellbeing of all Australians.
Just over 18 months into the pandemic, Australia is in an interesting, albeit perturbing, situation with the “management” of COVID19. What insights do we uncover by applying a cybersecurity lens to the pandemic response?
Your organisation’s sensitive information is like the inside of an egg. To ensure their security against cyber attacks, most organisations today add layers of protection, constantly updating and investing in different methods to improve the protective properties of their ‘eggshell’. do you know how safe your egg is?
