The Annual Cybersecurity Attitudes and Behaviors Report 2022

“How much does attitude impact behaviour — and increase cyber security risk? To answer that question and more, CybSafe and the National Cybersecurity Alliance have partnered to produce the (first of its kind) Oh Behave! The Annual Cybersecurity Attitudes and Behaviors Report 2022. Download it now for in-depth analysis you can act on to build awareness, influence behaviour and reduce people-related cyber security incidents.”

Cyber Expo: “The human aspect of cybersecurity is widely recognized as a critical component of cyber resilience and risk reduction. However, one of the least understood areas is that of security behaviours and attitudes. Specifically, the gap or disconnect between knowledge and action. The National Cybersecurity Alliance and CybSafe have formed a multi-year research partnership to better understand and share insight into user security attitudes and behaviours. During Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2022 the National Cybersecurity Alliance and CybSafe will release the second annual Cybersecurity Attitudes & Behaviors Report. This research report series is the first of its kind and seeks to examine cybersecurity attitudes and behaviours of the general public (including the those in the workforce), shedding light on one of the most important aspects of cyber risk – the human factor. This presentation will provide a sneak peek into key insights from the report’s findings, and will explore how this body of research supports a targeted approach to human cyber risk management.”
