A cyber resilient culture detects and responds positively to the continually evolving cyber threat landscape. Organisational cyber security culture influences the cyber resilience of the organisation. This course explores how to make people aware of the cyber threat, why they don’t behave in a secure way even when they know the risk, and how incentive strategies and culture development can be used to improve cyber resilience. Real world examples from multiple industries are used to illustrate key principles.

The minicourse provides an understanding of cyber resilient culture and how it is constituted within a business context. The minicourse specifically looks into how employees' awareness of cyber security and cyber threats could be built as well as how their non-cybersecure behaviour could be changed, both as requirements of a desired cyber culture.
