Cyber risk - the human factors

28 February 2018, Warwick

A constant refrain from regulators and the cyber-security industry is that cyber-risk can’t be dealt with by IT solutions alone and that human behaviour can be as much of an opening to a cyber-criminal as technical failings. One study suggested that human error was to blame for as many as 90% of cyber-breaches involving financial services firms. But do firms understand what the human behaviour risks actually are?

This event will examine the human element of cyber risk more closely, taking delegates through the main risk factors in human behaviour that creates opportunities for cyber-criminals, how to spot warning signs and what to do if you identify that your society is at risk.  This includes how criminals approach employees to persuade or coerce them into providing access to systems, the risk created by the complacent and negligent employee and the risks and controls needed around providing access to your systems to 3rd parties.
This seminar is being run in conjunction with Warwick Manufacturing Group and Faculty of Social Sciences whose international reach has given them a unique insight into how the cyber-threat has developed - both from both an academic and a practical management perspective - and how effective organisations manage the human factors within cyber risk.
