Masterclass: Integrating Human and Technical Defenses

Join our online Masterclass for practical strategies for guarding against the #1 cyber risk facing organizations today.
Integrating Human and Technical Defenses

How can integrating human and technical defenses promote a more holistic approach to cybersecurity? With over 25 years of experience spanning medical, aerospace manufacturing, and defense sectors, Erich Kron brings unparalleled expertise to address one of the most critical aspects of cybersecurity today: the human factor.

The conversation around human error and cyber risk has, once again, been shoved into the spotlight recently, with Southwest Airlines and Liberty Insurance battling out policy interpretation in federal court in May this year. The case has underscored the critical importance of nuanced interpretations of causation in cyber insurance claims, particularly concerning human actions and management decisions during cyber incidents. We are delighted to be hosting Kron for a one-hour online Masterclass that promises to advocate for a more nuanced understanding of how human actions interact with technical vulnerabilities. This Masterclass will explore practical strategies to strengthen organizational resilience against cyber threats, emphasizing proactive security measures and robust incident response frameworks.
