Integrating Humans and Technology – Four Steps to Cyber Hygiene

This book is about humans, the interaction between people and technology, and the process that surrounds that constant interaction. Throughout the book, you'll notice that technical and organizational dynamics are often discussed together. That's because it's hard to separate the two; humans are at the front and center of every cybersecurity decision and action you take.

While human factors are not the be all and end all in achieving a secure organization, they certainly play a crucial role in every organization's security measures. You have to talk about cybersecurity from a macro view that's inclusive of the human factors at every step of the way. Every organization needs, in my experience, to take four essential steps to build a culture of effective and meaningful cyber hygiene, and bind the human and technical foundations of cybersecurity together: continuous training, global awareness, regular updates, and Zero Trust. Cybersecurity doesn't exist in a vacuum, and effective guidance of your organization's cyber hygiene needs to take into account the cultural realities that make up your organization's environment.

To deliver the critical information needed to fully comprehend cybersecurity, I thought a lot about the people having a profound impact on our industry and the focus they could provide through their insight.

I engaged them, and through dialogue, interviews, and then subsequent takeaways that I present, I approached future concerns and corresponding solutions, and the overlap they have with the real-world challenges occurring as we speak.

After we fully examine the role of humans at every level of cybersecurity, we'll review how cybersecurity intersects with the following areas through wide-reaching conversations about blockchain technology, the cloud, proactive and reactive approaches to data breaches, the Internet of Things (IoT), augmented reality, and artificial intelligence.
