International Keynote Address Levers of human deception: the science and methodology behind social engineering

Over the past few years we have witnessed major data breaches – compromising billions of confidential records – at some of the most recognised brands around the world. Nearly all of these breaches shared one major contributing factor: human error. Human error that, in many cases, might have been preventable had all relevant people throughout the targeted organisation been practising proper cyber hygiene.
This keynote will explore how to dramatically reduce the likelihood of human error/insider threats both malicious and non-malicious - and the cybersecurity nightmares that it can create - and will cover four major components of establishing proper cyber hygiene: continuous training for all employees, global awareness and education, maintaining up-to-date security and patching and implementing a zero-trust model. It will also cover various aspects of employee demographics, will explore the difference – and conflict between - security culture vs compliance culture and examine the human dynamics ramifications for security of different management styles. Providing the right training and having your employees understand that they are part of the solution and not the problem when it comes to overall strong cyber hygiene in your organisation will lead to a secure environment and happy and loyal employees.
