Secura's Inge Wetzer presents new research at ONE Conference
Analyzing behavior to raise your people's cyber resilience
"How can we help people behave more securely in the digital world?" This is a question psychologist Inge Wetzer has worked on for two decades.
At the ONE Conference, she presented her latest research into raising people's cyber resilience. Her focus: the role of self efficacy, or confidence in your own ability, and the role of organizational culture.
Inge: "Over the past decade, we've come to understand that people play a critical role in cybersecurity, right alongside technology and processes. Psychology has made a key impact by showing us that awareness isn't enough when it comes to the human aspect. There's a clear difference between knowing the right thing to do and actually doing it."
