Patching Your Employees' Brains

  • Pieter Danhieux
  • Thursday, March 21st, 6:00pm - 7:00pm

In any security system the human element has always been considered one of the weakest links. Some significant security breaches in 2011/2012 have again confirmed this dogma and Pieter will demonstrate how easy it is to construct malicious documents that bypass filters and provide remote access to networks.

This non-technical presentation (or, at least, non-technical after slide 5) will provide you with the context and examples on why humans are prone to cyber attacks and will outline an approach on how humans can be educated to change their default "insecure" behavior/culture. The presentation contains multiple real-life examples how security awareness has changed behaviors around the world.
