ISACA: Psychology Addressing the Human Factor in Cybersecurity

Our Social Psychologist Cybersecurity & Compliance Inge Wetzer will be speaking at the upcoming webinar of ISACA on 1 September 2021: 'To educate, to motivate or to facilitate? Psychology addressing the human factor in cybersecurity'.

In this Square Table, Inge will be explaining how insights from psychology can be used to make people more resilient against any kind of cyber threats. Along the way, Inge will show that this goes beyond educating people & that there is more than meets the eye. She will explain how psychology teaches other interventions, such as motivating and facilitating people and how this can sometimes be more effective towards behavioral change.
