Session Topic:

How to Actually Train Your Humans

What does human error actually mean when it comes to a data breach? 

With everyone working remotely due to COVID, remoteness now creates a larger scope of what can be exposed across devices, networks, and everything in between. This has already had a massive impact on the cyber side, as hackers are human garbage and using COVID as a ‘flavor of the week’ to prey on vulnerable people. 

Knowing the majority of cyber security incidents come down to human error, it’s important to look at what there are some basic things organizations can do today to stop bad actors.

In this session, Nick Santora, CISA, CISSP, will explain what human error actually means and how to properly prepare your employees to spot a phish-y email with security awareness training. As a former cybersecurity auditor for the federal government and now the CEO of Curricula, he’s seen firsthand how properly training your people can stop a hacker from ever getting past your inbox.

Nick will discuss how to work with your executive team to create a formalized approach to cyber security training, what the content should include, and how to work across departments to actually help prevent inglorious breaches.
