Be the driver of change. Go beyond Security Awareness training. Aim towards building positive Cyber Security culture at the workplace.
Culture can be defined as - "A significant percentage of the population demonstrating similar behavioural characteristics". Hence, positive Cybersecurity culture can be defined as - "A significant percentage of the population (workforce) demonstrating positive Cybersecurity practices (behaviour)."
Changing culture is not an easy task. Culture depends on numerous factors, especially if certain work practices are ingrained over time. As a Cybersecurity manager, you have a defined area of work. Focus on what you can do.
Develop strategies for creating awareness and changing cybersecurity behaviour.
Create an annual time table for security awareness covering onboarding training, mandatory annual training, refreshers, periodic emailers, direct interactions like town halls, Cybersecurity days etc.
Behaviour is changed through experience. Hence, deliver training programs, with Cyber-risk simulations that enable learners to Immerse, analyse and experience Cybersecurity risks.
Positive communication fosters positive culture. Communicate regularly with end-users through direct interactions and periodic advisories. Positive communication fosters positive culture. Explore how positive Security Awareness Training and communication can build positive Security culture. Let them know that the Cybersecurity team is here to help them do their job better.
Be accessible. Let them know how you can be reached.
Check the change in awareness through Cyber Security Awareness surveys.
Measure change in behaviour through social engineering assessments (phishing simulations, fake Cyberattacks etc).
Observe the change in culture by monitoring user behaviour. Analyse whether they need to be reminded about Cybersecurity or is it now ingrained as part of their work habits?
We'll help you being your partner in designing, delivering and fostering positive Cyber Security culture through Security Awareness training and communication. We shall further enhance our engagement with efficient training platforms, reports and analytics.
