CWF Forum: Re-thinking the Human Factor in Cyber. The Uncomfortable Truth.

What makes humanity great is the root cause behind why people are the weakest link when it comes to security. It’s a biological fact! On a deeply personal level I have faith in humanity. But is this belief rational? Or, more to the point, is there evidence to back this belief up?

In this new edition we've invited Bruce Hallas. He will share a small part of what he discovered as part of his Re-thinking the Human Factor research project. We will be exploring one of the fundamental limitations, in nearly every effort to date to drive positive security behaviours.

Bruce Hallas
Bruce is the driving force behind the Re-thinking the Human Factor #RHF movement. He is an authorpodcast host, speaker, consultant and trainer in the field of security awareness, behaviour and culture.

His journey into information security started with formal training in law, finance and marketing. This made him, for many years, an outsider looking in, to a tech centric industry and approach to security. 

To survive he had to innovate and find his own path.  He did this by focusing on the human aspects of the challenge starting with risk, governance and compliance and then 6 years ago he kicked off an industry movement to re-think the human factor.

Bruce has now completed 6 years research into Re-thinking the Human Factor which has culminated in the development and launch of the SABC™ (Security Awareness, Behaviour & Culture) Framework in 2016. 

The Framework has been implemented in organisations covering 24 countries and in 4 languages. His research, vision and experience has attracted the attention of many industry stakeholders including ISC2 and the SANS Institute. He’s a regular speaker and panellist on the human factor where he’s been sharing his disruptive thoughts and uncomfortable truths on education and awareness now for 6 years.

Bruce shares his insights with CISO’s, Education and Awareness Managers and Security professionals through his podcast called Re-thinking the Human Factor, online and face to face training or over a coffee with decent chocolate.
