Sausalito, California – March 29, 2024

Verdict Reports that cybersecurity training programs deployed across organizations are not effectively preparing employees for modern threats, according to Neil Thacker, CISO EMEA and LATAM for security software company Netskope.

Annual cybersecurity and compliance training programs are now a lucrative business across all industries. According to Cybersecurity Ventures, the security awareness training market was worth US$5.6 billion in 2023 and will exceed $10 billion by 2027.

Thacker, who has more than 20 years of experience in the information security industry and is a co-founder and board member of the Security Advisor Alliance, says organizations need to add more. human-centered prevention to their training.

Thacker used the traffic sign analogy to explain his point: Most of the time, drivers don’t pay much attention to traditional traffic signs. However, road signs with radar systems that tell drivers how fast they are going are more effective in slowing people down and obeying the speed limit.

“This is what we need in cybersecurity; we need to show an employee, for example, when they are about to do something that poses a risk to the organization or a risk to themselves,” Thacker said.
