Research Study: Building a Cyber Smart Culture

This research examines the challenges organizations face when trying to build a strong cyber security culture, and provides some strategies that can help you change your employees’ cyber security mindset.

Why and how leaders should prioritize stronger cyber security behaviors and mindsets

Many of the most worrying cyber security vulnerabilities involve human negligence or ignorance. This is not a new problem, but the Covid-19 pandemic has placed new emphasis on individuals and cyber secure behaviors. As a result, industries have been forced to confront the security challenges of widespread remote working and a society that increasingly functions online.

This means that cyber secure behaviors need to become second nature to people across the workforce spectrum. What can your organization do to encourage this?

According to our global research, employees shared that:


  • 54% admitted to bypassing security policies to keep pace with significant changes*
  • 48% are reluctant to report any threats they find*
  • 45% believe that most people in their organization think that cyber security has nothing to do with them*
  • 61% believe their current cyber security training is ineffective – with boredom, lack of targeting, and generic content contributing to a lack of sense of ownership*
