Culture Eats Cybersecurity for breakfast .

One person, acting alone, can’t create a culture of security. But even a small group of people, working together can find the right fulcrum to move the biggest companies.
 
Security controls in and of themselves are not enough for protection. When groups of people form, norms are established. Sometimes, these norms are antithetical to security. In these cases, one person changing their behavior won’t change the whole company. A culture of cybersecurity embraced at all levels of a company, government, or community is needed.
COMPANIES WITH BELOW AVERAGE CULTURE RATINGS ARE 3X MORE LIKELY TO EXPERIENCE A DATA BREACH.
