Title: People-Centric Security
Today’s most popular security and compliance tools focus on protecting the perimeter—they manage endpoints and patch system vulnerabilities.
But cybercriminals don’t target technical vulnerabilities. They target human weakness: the distracted user who clicks on an email attachment, the eager customer who fills in credentials to claim a fake offer, a loyal employee who follows directions to wire money from a criminal impersonating their CEO.
The only security strategy that will successfully combat today’s advanced attacks is one that focuses on protecting our people.
You will learn how to build a strategy that:
- Reveals who is targeted
- Combats attacks before they reach your users
- Mitigates damage from the attacks that will inevitably reach your people
