Developing a Security Culture that Reduces Risk All-around
According to the team at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard’s Kennedy School, the most powerful cyber countries in the world are as follows: United States, China, UK, Russia, Netherlands, France, Germany, Canada, Japan, Australia, and Israel. Now some of these do not surprise us, but some do. Like the Netherlands, with 17 million people or little Israel, with 9 million, size and location play a role. But what is the most important thing is the human factor. People play an essential role not just when it comes to developing a security culture in countries but also when it comes to companies. Developing a security culture in a company moves beyond teaching employees about security; it is about living in every process and every department. The guest in this episode takes to us on how to develop and maintain a security culture.
