We build devices, systems, and applications for real people. Yet, in the world of cybersecurity, most regard humans as the weakest link in the chain. The notion of strong cybersecurity often equates to poor user experience and disregard for the humans who use the technology and data. This approach can weaken your organization’s security profile, generating workarounds or outright indifference.
To be most effective, security must be convenient and user-friendly.
In this session, attendees will learn how to apply human-centered design principles to an organization’s cybersecurity strategy. As our expert speakers will show, this approach improves the user experience and everyone’s security behavior.
