Today, the human factor still plays a role in most cybersecurity incidents. Human error is involved in 74% of data breaches. It’s essential to shift towards designing human-centric controls that promote and facilitate the use of responsible cybersecurity practices among employees.

First, let’s confirm what many of us have already discussed: It’s not fun to be a CISO right now. There’s an overwhelming amount of expectation—from the board to business unit owners—to figure out how to grow and use data, but also keep it secure, and figure out what happens when it’s not.
