As we look ahead to 2018, some are predicting new and novel cyberthreats, such as ransomware attacking people through Internet of Things- (IoT-) enabled home appliances. While such dystopian visions may indeed come to pass, what’s clear to us is that end-user risk will continue to play a critical role in an organization’s cybersecurity.

All-In on Technology? Expect Users to Fold When the Chips Are Down.
Despite the fact that many security experts have been encouraging — even imploring — organizations to think differently about their end users and focus on building a culture of security from the top down, infosec professionals still yearn for a technical solution to employee-driven cybersecurity woes, phishing in particular. This is, frankly, totally understandable. As humans, we all long for “magic bullet” solutions to pressing and wide-ranging problems, and often hope that the path of least resistance will take us to our desired destination.
Certainly, end-user security awareness training is not a path of least resistance. But it is a path worth walking, on a number of levels. Here’s just one reason why:
You say: “Forget security awareness training. It doesn’t work, and I’d rather put my time and money into technology-based defense-in-depth strategies.”
Your end users hear: “I can do whatever I want because IT will fix it.”
Security Awareness Training: ‘Petrified Users’ Shouldn’t Be Your Goal
Given what we do, it’s should come as no surprise that we like to keep our finger on the pulse of the security awareness training market. (You aren’t recognized as a Leader by Gartner for four years running by operating with blinders on, after all.)
We are particularly interested to know how end users are responding to training efforts in different organizations and different industries. Since we believe that users are key to cybersecurity postures — those who maketh the mistakes can also take them away, right? — it stands to reason that we also believe that organizations should consider how their end users might feel about (and react to) cybersecurity education efforts.
