In this security awareness roundtable,  Steve Ellis and Chris Carpinello join me to explain and explore the real challenge underlying security and security awareness: the “human paradox gap” (HPG).

Listen to our recording to learn:

  • The human paradox gap (HPG)
  • How the Human Paradox Gap impacts security and security awareness
  • Why the gap has to be bridged in order to gain effectiveness

The audio of the roundtable is now available for download and enjoyment. Don’t forget to explore why the definition of security awareness matters.

This is only the beginning.
