In this talk, Prof. Steven Furnell examines our tendency to bemoan the poor cyber security behaviour of users, while at the same time leaving them largely under-supported in terms of awareness and guidance. The presentation considers the typical extent of user awareness provisions within organisations, and the potential cause-and-effect linkage in terms reported problems. Acknowledging that awareness and training are often dismissed as ineffective, the discussion also presents an example of where appropriate awareness has been proven to make a difference. Password practices are used as a specific case in point, on the basis that users have been getting them wrong for years, and yet we often seem to persist in assuming that they will somehow do better without any improvement in the support to do so. Research findings are presented to show the effect of offering basic password guidance, as well as different forms of feedback on users’ password choices.

Piers Wilson discusses the findings from the IISP member and industry survey 2017 exploring the themes and introducing the newly published The Cyber & Information Security profession 2017/18 which will be available at the event.
