Cyber risk is a business risk


Should your security focus be on systems or people?

In the latest Modern Workplace episode, “Cyber Intelligence—The Human Element,” we look at how organizations not only need to look at their systems but also have to address the security threats that stem from the behavior of their own employees, who oftentimes are the source of cyber-attacks. Phil Ferraro, CISO of Nielson, explains how security is not a responsibility to be merely delegated to IT and how failures in security have a direct impact on the business.

In the past, organizations typically focused on ensuring their networks were secure. But today, so many attacks are a result of employee actions, taking advantage of human behavior because employees provide easier entry points for malicious attacks. For example, spear phishing emails are commonplace and becoming more sophisticated.
