Behavioral metrics: The future of security awareness
Boosting security awareness with the help of behavioral science
The threat landscape has pushed many security professionals to move from mere technical measures toward a more holistic, human-centered approach to cyber security. As part of this shift, behavioral change has become the key term that organizations now focus on to build a strong security culture that gives cybercriminals less of a chance to do harm.
Understanding the behavior of both attackers and users, and how successful certain measures are in changing user behavior, helps organizations anticipate attacks and neutralize them early on. Clear and meaningful behavioral metrics also give companies the opportunity to constantly adapt their awareness initiatives and drive real behavior and culture change.

- How you can implement principles from behavioral science in your organization’s cyber security awareness training
“Behavioral metrics are invaluable tools in discussions with all stakeholders involved in security awareness programs, from C-level executives to employees.”
