Almost 80% of attacks are due to staff members’ actions; therefore, action must be taken to ensure that every staff member appreciates security issues. Although this is well-known, it is rare to find security managers prepared to invest in raising levels of awareness and training to meet current challenges. Heads of security often lack two key factors required for success:
A solid business case, enabling them to make a convincing argument – with the support of KPIs – that a security education program will contribute effectively to reducing a company’s risks; and that this takes time and requires a constant, high degree of resources; and
Above all, the skills, which, let’s admit it, are rarely all available within security teams: specialists in communication, human resources, behavior change and psychology.
This is precisely what we contribute. Adviso is a specialist in behavioral cybersecurity. Our job is to support you in all the steps of drawing up and implementing the program you operate to educate your staff in cybersecurity.
To do so, we create the initiative in collaboration with your team. Our end goal is also to train your staff and give them the independence to lead this very special system for supporting behavior change. This holds true even if we work from outside the company – if you outsource to us, for example, all the awareness work.
As your partner in change, Adviso will help you turn your collaborators into a first line of defense, the “human firewall” of your organization. Together, we will create a positive security culture in which employees are empowered and managers are the advocates and sponsors to make security decisions and provide a safe working environment embedded within the operating fabric of your business.
Technical solutions alone will not yield the full spectrum of their promised benefits until all information system users upgrade their inner security behavior “program”. Information security programs must integrate all technical, organizational and human dimensions into their design to be effective. Communication, training, mobilization and leadership – to mention a few – are key aspects of any successful execution.
