Security leaders at Infosecurity Europe stress the importance of cultivating a security culture that promotes understanding and collaboration among colleagues.


They underscore the significance of creating an environment where the business and security teams work together towards common objectives. Strategies such as live demonstrations of threats [2], like phishing attacks [2], and offering direct benefits to individuals [1] [2], such as new business opportunities or personal security enhancements, are suggested to engage colleagues in security practices. Collaboration [1] [2], feedback [1] [2], and skill development initiatives are identified as crucial elements in fostering a robust security culture. Embracing new technologies [2], such as AI, and being adaptable to emerging risks that bring value to the business are also highlighted as strategies to gain a competitive advantage. Additionally, creating a safe environment for colleagues to report incidents without fear of reprisal is deemed essential for maintaining and enhancing security.


By implementing these strategies and initiatives, organizations can enhance their security posture, mitigate risks, and stay ahead of potential threats. Moving forward, it is imperative for businesses to continue investing in building a strong security culture to safeguard their assets and maintain a competitive edge in the ever-evolving landscape of cybersecurity.
