As companies pivot toward a digital business model, exponentially more data is generated and shared among organizations, partners and customers. This digital information has become the lifeblood of today’s interconnected business ecosystem and is increasingly valuable to organizations—and to skilled threat actors. Business digitization also has exposed companies to new digital vulnerabilities, making effective cybersecurity and privacy more important than ever.

The growing digitization of today's world brings along great advantages such as greater efficiency and the possibility of working from home. The growing dependency on the internet however also has a downside. The threat landscape of organization has changed considerably over the last few years due to the emergence of new cyber risks. This requires a paradigm shift in the ecosystem of cybersecurity, away from a mere technical perspective towards a greater focus on the human factor. In essence, security should be an integral part of the organization and its employees. Such an established secure culture will make employees a human firewall instead of the weakest link in today's threat environment. How is this to be done?
