Using Behavior Design to Shift from Awareness to Behavior Change

BJ Fogg, PhD, Director of the Stanford Behavior Design Lab and New York Times Bestseller, Tiny Habits
Andrew Rose, Resident CISO , Proofpoint

CE Credits: 0.25


The goal of any security awareness program is to reduce the risk of cyber incidents by improving the choices that staff make when confronted with threats and risks.  Unfortunately, there are many examples across society of people making unsafe and unhealthy choices when they know better, so how can we expect a program focused purely on awareness to somehow change behaviors?

As security professionals, we need to focus on how our input can make a real difference – we need to drive our programs past just ‘awareness’ and reduce our risk by achieving real behavioral change across our user population. Join this session with Dr. BJ Fogg, renowned Behavior Scientist and Founder of the Behavior Design Lab at Stanford University, to learn about how behavior design can help your people create habits for better cybersecurity in your organization.

11:32AM - 11:40AM
