Security awareness and training have been improving worldwide, Sara Mosqueda advises on Today in Security, citing KnowBe4’s 2022 Security Culture Report.
“More than 530,000 employees at almost 3,000 different organizations were surveyed by KnowBe4 Research, which is part of the same organization that offers security awareness training.
“Researchers approached the issue with the understanding that regardless of an organization’s location or goal, its security awareness, behavior, and culture are demonstrated through its ideas, customs, and social behaviors.
“’Security culture involves how people think about and approach a more secure environment, and this report focuses on those key elements,’ Perry Carpenter, chief strategy officer for KnowBe4 and one of the authors of the report, said in a press release.
“The research measured seven aspects of security culture, including attitudes, behaviors, cognition, communication, compliance, norms, and responsibilities. The report is based on survey responses from more than 257,000 employees.”
Both reports make for some reassuring reading.
