Optimizing Employee Cyber Awareness Programs to Build a Robust Human Firewall Against Power Grid Cybercriminals

It is estimated that 98% of cyberattacks are launched using social engineering techniques to gather intelligence, gain access to critical information systems, and target exploits where they will hurt an organisation the most. Hackers know that if they can tap into your employees’ inherently good nature and desire to be helpful, they can manipulate them through emotions such as fear, greed, curiosity and urgency, to drive your employees to take actions that provide the social engineer with rapid access to a wealth of sensitive organisational information, that helps them disrupt your operations and wreaks havoc with your service delivery.

In this 60-minute webinar, we deep-dive into the social engineering techniques currently being used against power grid workforces and determine how these are likely to develop in the next 2-3 years. We review a range of cyber awareness programmes, cyber hygiene approaches, and incident response strategies, that are helping proactive power grid cybersecurity leads to outsmart and thwart the social engineers’ efforts. Finally, we determine the most effective multi-layered defence-in-depth approach to combatting next generation social engineering to help you build a more robust human firewall and get ahead of the threat.

By upgrading your workforce cyber awareness so that your people are able to intuitively strike the mindset balance between how things can made to work versus how things may be made to fail, you will be able to transform your workforce from the weakest link, to the strongest link, in your cybersecurity strategy.
