To those who work in information security or against cybercrime: you are the first line of defence in protecting our community, at work and at home. Your voices need to be heard, your role properly valued and supported by your management, whilst you must also to be able to pursue a career. It is our duty to invest in the human factor of cybersecurity. Empowered people are the most critical weapon in our battle against cybercrime and instability in cyberspace.
Recognising and empowering people is essential. It is about common sense – and it starts with putting human beings at the top of the agenda, as FIC does this year. It is continued by developing relevant outcomes such as publications and white papers, recognising existing best practices, rewarding motivated people, all the while keeping social values in mind.
The future of cybersecurity belongs to initiatives that enable and empower people to protect themselves from attackers, empower each of us to report what we perceive is of concern, and for defenders to track down criminals. Our first line of defence must be strong and resilient.
During the three days, be prepared to put the human being at the heart of cybersecurity.
