Human Risk Management
Reduce risk from employee behaviour and beliefs
Human Complacency Threat
Reduce workplace cultural vulnerabilities
One of the biggest cybersecurity threats is the human-centric attitude of complacency.

Transmedia storytelling can create an emotional connection to cyber risks and highlight human behaviours like bias, motivation, stress and habits which lead to cybersecurity failings.
Emotional connection
Human Risk Management (HRM) requires employees to be emotionally invested in cyber security so as to change negative behaviours and reinforce positive ones. Conducttr is a scenario-based exercise platform allowing storytelling to build a solid bond between possible vulnerabilities and positive behaviour.
Security culture
Promoting and rewarding secure behaviour, and integrating cybersecurity into the core values and daily practices of your company can be achieved using a range of transmedia storytelling techniques supported by Conducttr.

This could mean using active workplace posters and rewards as well as team-based challenges.
Psychological factors
Psychological factors that affect cyber security include cognitive biases like optimism, confirmation and anchoring - all of which impair decision-making and risk assessment. But possibly the most common factors in the everyday workplace will be complacency & habit, lack of motivation, peer influence and over-confidence.

All of these factors can be addressed with scenario-based security situations that bring to life and hence bring into focus negative behaviours and attitudes that must be remedied.
Incident response
Human Risk Management includes developing and enforcing policies that guide how employees should respond in the event of a security breach. Conducttr is perfect for simulating security issues and training employees how to report and respond to potential and real security incidents.

Transmedia storytelling
Conducttr’s internal human risk management, centres on a fictional storyworld called ShadowRunners in which employees are recruited to combat cyber crime.

Making the world believable through simulated social media and websites develops engagement as a conduit to deliver important messages.
The storyworld extends to office posters that tie the real-world to the online.

Using art and culture that connects to employees and develops real-world conversations is another opportunity to ensure cyber security remains top of mind.
