A journey through the impact of people on Cyber Security in our connected Society.
Our society becomes more connected in a very high pace. New technology emerges faster than we are able to embrace and understand. And at the same time, we are expected to use technology in a safe manner and most of us expect that all this technology is there to serve us.
In fact, most of us still assume that there is someone somewhere who will make sure that our infrastructure, services, devices and apps are safeguarded. Or that safety features will ensure that nothing can happen, as if buying a car with airbags would make it safe to ignore traffic rules. The gap between our understanding of technology and the pace with which new technology enters our lives and organizations continues to grow and a false sense of safety is among the biggest risks. Add to this that flaws in configuration and management of technology make organizations and individuals an easy target for cyber criminals and we will understand that the Human Element in Cyber Security requires significantly more attention than it gets today.
About Dr. ir Johannes Drooghaag
Dr. ir Johannes Drooghaag, commonly known as JD, started his career in Applied Information Technology and quickly realized that the development and complexity of technology outpaces the development of our understanding of technology.
Working based on the principal that we don’t have to understand the bits and bytes to use technology, but we must understand how to use it optimal and secure, Johannes developed a wide range of consulting services, training programs, keynotes and workshops to allow people and organizations to do just that: embrace technology in the optimal and secure way. The Human Element in Cyber Security, The Human Element in Agile and Cyber Security for Road Warriors (and Couch Potatoes) are examples of these programs.
Working as consultant, trainer and speaker with clients and partners around the globe, the mission is crystal clear. Bridge the gap between what we do and what we know.
I am JD. I love what I do, and so will you!
