In this episode we explore the intersection of cybersecurity and human behavior with returning guest, Dr. Margaret Cunningham, Principal Research Scientist for Human Behavior at Forcepoint X-Labs. For public and private sector organizations, cybersecurity has always been addressed as a technology-first challenge. However as cyber threats evolve, the lack of behavioral science becomes a growing issue in today’s threat environment. We discuss the challenge of calculating and addressing risk, the importance of understanding human behavior vs. controlling it, and why most organizations fail to effectively measure and understand the true impact of cyber solutions. Additionally, we look at how the pandemic has created opportunities for expanding and diversifying the cyber workforce, and why it’s critical for us to open the aperture of traditional security to include experts in fields such as human behavior.
