It is challenging get employees engaged in identifying these types of attacks. In general, a strong culture helps an organization and its people successfully obtain objectives and creates a positive environment employees wish to be involved in. This session will explore ways we can create a strong cybersecurity culture that will strengthen your institution against cybersecurity attacks. We will focus on creating passion toward protecting sensitive information, compassion toward our vulnerabilities and weaknesses, and encouraging a desire for employees to be successful in your institution.
