In the majority of data breaches, human error is blamed. Humans are frequently regarded as the ‘weakest link’ in information security, but organisations have not aimed to understand the reasons why humans make mistakes and are easily coerced by attackers.

Organisations can take both human-centred and technological steps to mitigate human fallibility: encouraging good security practice at the same time as deploying intelligent systems that learn and analyse activity and behaviour, providing alerts when an attack is imminent.

In this webinar, ISF research analysts Daniel Norman and Richard Absalom will:

•explain why humans are a weak link in security but also a key part of the solution – and how human-centred techniques can help
•provide clarity on what AI really is, and what it can and cannot do for information security
•pose questions on the extent to which AI could and should monitor networks and people to provide security
