(Alleen beschikbaar in het Engels)

On Thursday, October 6th, our behavioral scientist Sophie Jellema and Floris Duvekot, Behavior Manager, will host the webinar: "Psychology addressing the human factor in cybersecurity". During this webinar, you will learn more about how you can get your employees to show the desired behavior within cybersecurity. You can now sign up here.

About the Webinar

Previous attempts to make employees of organizations more resilient have largely focused on enhancing awareness. However, psychology shows that a gap exists between awareness (knowing what you should do) and behavior (what you actually do). To solve this, many security professionals have the tendency to jump to solutions, without knowing which solution will be most effective. This webinar will provide insights into how people’s behavior is composed and what influence organizational cultures have on the resilience of employees in information security. This knowledge helps cybersecurity professionals to target their efforts more specifically, contributing to more effective cybersecurity campaigns.

Risks in cybersecurity are evolving rapidly, and addressing these risks can be challenging. You want your employees to be aware of the risks, and you want them to act accordingly. How can you keep up with the pace of change in cybersecurity threats? How do you know you are secure and that your employees show desired behavior? Our psychologists will shed their light on how to address these risks from a scientific perspective.
