Cybersecurity and compliance are two subjects that have only become part of an organisation’s “business as usual” activity in the last ten years. However, the dissemination of this knowledge amongst the staff and contractor population within the organisation has proven to be a big problem. This is due to a multitude of reasons, but the biggest obstacle to increase user awareness of cybersecurity and compliance is the fact that the subject matter is dull and boring. This means that there is a natural aversion to this subject matter among users and management. The organisation does not help with an inconsistent approach to communication, be via it email or Intranet as well as the low quality of eLearning courses.
At MetaCompliance it is our belief that the organisation should recognise these natural barriers to changing behaviour and meet the user population halfway by having recognisable, repeatable and high-quality communications on cybersecurity and compliance.
