The ISF is delighted to announce the release of Human-Centred Security: Positively influencing security behaviour.

Human error and negligence still contribute to a significant number of security incidents, yet current approaches to mitigating this risk are failing to have the desired impact. Many organisations have not always prioritised the effective management of this risk and have historically relied upon security awareness to influence security behaviour. Yet this only resolves a small part of the problem and neglects other factors. A robust human-centred security programme is required.

This briefing paper helps Members to:

  • understand the key factors that influence behaviour
  • deliver impactful security education, training and awareness
  • design systems, applications, processes and the physical environment to account for user behaviour
  • develop metrics to measure behaviour change and demonstrate return on investment.
