Cybersecurity missing a key job role?
I look at cybersecurity jobs regularly, I never really see opportunities for myself. I should. I focus on one of the biggest risks - People.
I would love to be part of a cybersecurity team. However, they often sit in their silo, intimidated to engage with the workforce. Which is ironic, since the problem with the workforce is they are often intimidated by the technology and the cybersecurity team.
It really doesn't have to be that way. Let's face it most employee cybersecurity initiative are an afterthought. The messages are boring change your passwords blah, blah, blah. It's written by people who lack imagination, enthusiasm and under estimate the importance of what they do.
Creating cyber secure employees isn't a matter of simply developing policy or a to do list. If giving someone a list of things to do worked, well I would have used it on my husband and kids.
No, tick box education doesn't work. Cybersecurity messages have to engage your audience, put risks into context so people can relate to them, motivate people to take action - you have to sell cybersecurity to them.
I would like to see gaming, roll playing, video, polls, competitions, cartoons and more, That would make cybersecurity interesting, fun, educational but most of all effective.
