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.

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

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.
