Security culture should start upon hire
You story is on point but missing a vital detail. Security culture in the workplace should begin with the employees that are likely to be on the front line of a phishing or social engineering attack. Yes, CISO are part of the equation but good security culture should include those below the management level. Most employees are ignorant of exactly how social engineerng works and as result it is management that must respond and that is where your article starts. Everything you said is correct but it seems to me that far too many companies are preparing management for cyber incidents but not employees. Management needs to get into the grass roots of the company and focus on teaching good cyber security skills to employees as part of the corporate culture from the the first day aa worker goes into new employee orientation. A responsible CISO should step down a notch or two and begin to develop programs and training that create an alert workforce. Developing policies and technical tools to fight cyber attacks is fine but teaching employees to recognize the threat needs to be part of the program. The curret trend in employee training is the gamification of cyber security training. I feel this is a good step. But also teaching employees to help one another by practicing cyber security as a team is vital.
