Description

For too long, the cyber security industry has attempted to use fear, uncertainty and doubt to engage with the human element. It's time for us to see things differently. This engaging talk draws on extensive research in the sociology and psychology of fear, as well as real-world case studies, to explain why we can't simply scare people into security, but how we can harness human bias to have a more positive impact on cybersecurity awareness, behaviour and culture.
