You forgot about data ethics
Data ethics is growing rapidly as part of security culture because it trains and empowres employees to see and handle sensitive data in a different way. Risks can be significantly reduced when there's a culture of personal care and responsibility for data, and not just a broad awareness of risks.

And it can work very well as a risk management tool because being ethical is second nature to most humans.

This is where AI is already influencing security culture, and in a very surprising way.

Re: Language is Key
Great Article Joan. I recently left Gartner to join a start up who is empowering organziations to create a positive security culture. The team at Elevate Security has finally found a way to measure employee behavoir and celebrate the people who adopt a stronger security mindset. Along the way we found ways to make it fun and work towards Cyberlandia as Jon Check referenced! 

We are giving $100 to a charity of your readers choice for anyone who gives us the opportunity to provide a demo of our new approach. Not a super sales focused experience, more of peers talking about what works and how to messure it. 

 

Cheers,

Tom Carter

Language is Key
Even guidance documentation needs to be presented with a less perjorative term than "must". Being told to do something in this way creates a natural unconcious resistance. Depending on the reader, this resistance can filter out what may be critical instructions, and increase the probability of a mistake.
