People aren't the weakest link when it comes to cybersecurity in our organizations - they're the only link. And there is a key to helping anyone from an accountant to a doctor to be more cybersecure - habits. 

 In this Masterclass, George Finney, bestselling author of Well Aware and Project Zero Trust will show you how we can use neuroscience and psychology to influence the only thing that really matters in our security awareness training programs: behavior change.

 George will share his innovative approach to cybersecurity awareness to maximize the impact that security training can have on your organization.  Attendees will learn how to:

  1.  Focus On The Outcomes - what we need from Security Awareness is behavior change. Make real progress by changing one cybersecurity habit one step at a time. 
  2. Think Like A Coach - We want to see our employees succeed in our mission to keep our organizations secure by finding their unique strengths and making them even better. 
  3. Make It Personal - We’ve reimagined cybersecurity awareness from the ground up based on psychology and neuroscience to deliver highly effective, personalized training.

It all starts with our free cybersecurity personality test that helps individuals discover their unique strengths and we create a personalized training plan for every employee and their specific role within the organization.

George will provide a roadmap on how to use the science behind habits that can help make security possible for anyone. 

Attendees will be able to: 

  • Identify their own top internal and external cybersecurity strengths 
  • Understand how habits play a role in helping us become more secure

In the cybersecurity world, Red, Blue, and Purple teams have established their roles in fortifying defenses and improving organizational resiliency. However, the spotlight often bypasses a crucial player—the Yellow Teams—operating at the intersection of development, IT, and the cloud.

  • Unveiling the essentials for tech-savvy professionals to integrate security 
  • Crafting a vibrant palette: transforming Yellow Teams into dynamic orange and green forces 
  • The collective advantage: reducing risk via confident, resilient teams
