Introducing Human Risk Management

The theme of our “Get Smarter Summit” this spring is Human Risk Management (HRM). We are thankful to our sponsors Broadcom, Living Security, and ISMG for their continuing support. This event is poised to be an essential platform for understanding and innovating within the realm of human-centric security strategies in the digital age. HRM, a long-overdue evolution from traditional security awareness training, emphasizes the nuanced understanding of human behavior and its implications for cybersecurity and organizational resilience. Our summit is dedicated to unpacking the complexities of HRM, offering insights into how organizations can better anticipate, mitigate, and manage human-related risks in their increasingly complex environments. 


The “Get Smarter Summit” is not just an event; it’s a call to action for leaders, innovators, and thinkers to converge and collaborate towards creating safer, more resilient organizations, and we are thrilled to invite you to be a part of this pivotal conversation, where the focus on human risk management opens new pathways to securing our digital future.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

The Impact of Human Risk Management on 
 Breach Prevention

 

Traditional training methods often fall short due to issues like lack of engagement, irrelevance to daily tasks, infrequent updates, and an overwhelming amount of information. These challenges highlight the need for an approach that addresses the human element in cybersecurity through a comprehensive Human Risk Management plan. Participants will leave with specific strategies designed to manage ongoing human risk and show measurable improvement.

Dr. Brandy Harris, Director of Learning and Organizational Development, CyberEd.io

Managing The Complexities of Risks: The Human Factor

 

We have experimented with Security Awareness training for 12 years and it hasn’t worked. Matthew has some important ideas about how HRM can help change the direction of our internal practices before a cybersecurity incident and the critical importance of tracking human risky behavior in real-time across the globe.

Matthew Rosenquist, CISO, Mercury Risk

The Evolution of Security Awareness Training to Human Risk Management

 

At Forrester, they define HRM solutions as; Solutions that manage and reduce cybersecurity risks posed by and to humans through: Detecting and measuring human security behaviors and quantifying the human risk, initiating policy and training interventions based on the human risk, educating and enabling the workforce to protect themselves and their organization against cyber-attacks, and building a positive security culture. Ashley will tie that definition to the LivingSecurity implementation and explain how it all works.

Ashley Rose, CEO, Founder, LivingSecurity

Catastrophic Systemic Cloud Failure: The Risk, Impact and Probability

 

Unlike typical cyber incidents that affect a limited group, a systemic cyber issue has the potential to cause harm on a national or global level, jeopardizing the digital foundations crucial for societies, economies, and governments.

Tom Field and Edna Conway debate the likelihood and impact of a catastrophic systemic cyber risk materializing in the near term.

Edna Conway, Former VP, Chief Security & Risk Officer, Azure Infrastructure, Microsoft
Tom Field, Senior Vice President, Editorial, Information Security Media Group

The Convergence of Advanced Technologies Impact on Human Risk

 

In this session, Sandy will explore how Web3 is changing what it means to exist online through advancements in digital identity and data ownership. She examines how the Metaverse is revolutionizing the future of community with presence and emotion, and how
AI is being leveraged as a partner to businesses. The common thread tying these technologies together is how digital identity will keep us grounded, allowing us to benefit from these advancements without having to give up control of our digital lives.

Sandy Carter, COO, Unstoppable Domains
