TRAINING: Leadership and Cyber Security - Accepting the shared responsibility

TRAINING: Leadership and Cyber Security – Accepting the shared responsibility

The major challenge with Cyber Security is that our shared responsibility never ends. There isn’t a moment when the job is done. While we are busy doing the things, we are good at and even when we are done doing the things, we are good at, our responsibility for Cyber Security continues. There is a paradox in the corporate world when it comes to businesses managing their online presence. Most organizations focus much of their attention on attracting new visitors to their websites using a seo agency to help capture the interest of their target audience and to boost traffic. But, while companies are busy focusing on reaching a wider audience, the threat of unwanted attention from cybercriminals is always present.

IT Departments and Cyber Security experts are the enablers who provide the instruments for cyber security, just like a car manufacturer installs safety features in our cars. With our cars and all their safety features, we are still responsible for safe driving and expect the other drivers on the street to drive in a responsible and safe manner.

With technology it works in the same way. We are all responsible for safe usage and that is not just an IT-responsibility. We either all succeed together, or we all fail together. Cyber Security is never done, and we all play an important role in building cyber resilience throughout the organization and throughout our society.

Our research shows that more than 80% of all Cyber Incidents are preventable. That said, our research also shows that better understanding of the leadership challenges and shared responsibility will rapidly reduce the preventable cyber incidents significantly.

Cyber Resilience can only be achieved with IT, not by IT!

Objectives and Outcome: This training is designed to help leaders and managers understand that we are all in the same boat, and how teams can be motivated to take Cyber Security seriously. From budgeting to resourcing, from training to leading the Cyber Security effort by personal and professional example.

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!
