White Paper

Measure and Manage Your Human Risk

Achieve Data-Driven Results with Behavioral Risk Assessements

Cybersecurity is no longer just about technology, it’s also about people. People represent not only one of the biggest risks to organizations, but also one of the fastest-growing risks. According to the 2021 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), 85 percent of the reported 5,250 breaches in the last year involved a human element. Security awareness is part of—and an extension of—security teams that enable organizations to effectively manage and measure that risk.

In the white paper, Measure and Manage Your Human Risk, you'll gain best practices for utilizing behavioral risk assessments to more effectively manage and measure their human risk, and in the process, embed a much stronger security culture. .

The paper will walk you through how to:

  • Define the data types and systems specific to your organization
  • Quickly and easily deploy and customize the assessment
  • Utilize the results to understand and prioritize responses by risk level
  • Measure risk reduction and utilize trending to understand the impact of the program

Download the white paper to discover how these insights will identify the top human risks to your organization and enable you to address them via training.
