Communicate Feedback to Every Employee and Executive
Proactively inform employees about their individual security performance
& executives about security effectiveness
Foster a dialogue between security teams & employees
Some employees are targeted more frequently by attacks than others. These riskier front-line workers need to know to remain more vigilant. The security team can communicate what a threat looks like, what actions to take, and other tips on how to keep the organization more secure.
Communicate to employees in a personalized, trusted context about their security decisions and the repercussions. Help them understand how their actions compare to those of their peers. Explain the rationale behind changes in security policy, such as adjustment to access levels, permissions, and other controls.
Build executive support for new methods of reducing human risk
Security controls are regarded by many managers as creating unnecessary friction in the organization. Avoid workarounds by building support for a new way to approach cybersecurity. Human Risk Scores for managers can help them understand how their team, department, or region is performing and where the real issues are.
More important than communicating where employees are falling short, managers want to know where they are improving and doing well. Executives want to know what security tools are working and which aren’t. Security shouldn’t be punitive, and no enterprise should rely on awareness training alone to turn the tide.
