Key Learning Points
- Why it is so difficult to get employee engagement on security issues
- Why fear, uncertainty, and doubt are decimating your security message
- How to establish vision and mission to drive engagement and concepts for building an effective security team
Security leaders are under supreme pressure to build security programs that simultaneously protect the business without disabling it. However, the most daunting impediment to any security program is not technologies or regulations, but rather persuading employees to follow good security practices. As a security leader, how do you engage people to take security and risk management seriously?
The answer is security vision. People naturally protect and defend things they care about. An effective security program must look beyond policies and process, to build a foundation of purpose and meaning. It must connect people to the business and naturally promote care. When we ground a security program in an organizational vision, mission, and core values, we can better align to the business and cultivate employee engagement and care.
In this presentation, veteran security leader, as well as a CEO, Andrew Plato will discuss how to use security vision to improve the conversation with your team. We will discuss communication, leadership, and motivational strategies that inspire co-workers to embrace good security practices.
