People and cyber resilience: the human factor

People in meeting

There’s an increasing focus on resilience in cyber. No defence is impenetrable, so organisations are looking not just at how they detect and prevent attacks, but how they maintain operations and recover.

But a key, and under researched, part of resilience is the human factor. How do people act, and react? How will they perform under the pressure of an incident? And how do we train people to deal with a cyber attack, and who needs to take the lead on recovery?

All this prompted Immersive Labs to commission Osterman Research to investigate workforce cyber resilience. And we invited Immersive’s VP of cyber, Max Vetter, to talk us through the findings.
