Friendly Fire Podcast
A Podcast Exploring Employee Risk and How to Create Better Security Ecosystems
Did You Know?
Recent studies show that 82% of cyber incidents result from unintended human behavior. Further, the errant behavior of only 8% of all users creates most of this risk. This is pretty alarming, and yet no one is talking about it. Mitigating the risk of these individuals can have a force multiplier effect on reducing overall enterprise cyber risks.
Welcome to Friendly Fire: Mitigating Employee Risk. Where we explore Human Risk, to raise awareness across the industry, and stimulate discussion on how we can enhance both technical controls and stronger security culture to reduce the risk of everyone’s primary attack vector - our employees.

Vice President, Corporate Development and Investments, Cisco
"Adding human risk to our security calculus eliminates implicit trust, continuously validates digital interactions, and provides transparent and measurable feedback to reduce security gaps over time."
Vice President, Cyber Strategy Solutions, Booz Allen Hamilton
"Risk is not uniformly distributed among organizations, that much is clear from the results of our research. In fact, some users represent orders of magnitude more risk than others."
Cyentia Institute Partner and Data Scientist
