ISG, cyberconIQ Address Human Error Cyber Security Risk

By Greg Tavarez

Everyone makes mistakes – it's just part of being human. However, when it comes to cybersecurity, 95% of cybersecurity breaches are caused by human error, according to the IBM “Cyber Security Intelligence Index Report.” That’s an astronomical number that likely comes down to a lack of awareness or, even more likely, a lack of education.

To address the human side of cybersecurity and the risks that come with it, technology research and advisory firm ISG formed a partnership with cybersecurity platform cyberconIQ.

ISG Cybersecurity will offer its clients cyberconIQ’s Human Defense Platform through the partnership. The platform is a SaaS-based solution that helps mitigate the human factors that create cyber risks and is proven to reduce people-related cyber risk by up to 95%. Through the platform, gain access to risk-style assessments, a cyber risk dashboard, cyber awareness training, phishing simulation and remediation, digital citizenship learning and security framework compliance.

“We are excited to be working with ISG and its blue-chip client roster to bring the benefits of our human-centered approach to cybersecurity to more organizations,” said James Norrie, cyberconIQ CEO and founder. “Working together, our combination of technology and people-based approaches will help companies significantly improve their cyber defenses and risk awareness.”

Also through the partnership, cyberconIQ will offer access to ISG Cybersecurity services, an ISG unit that helps enterprise clients increase their cybersecurity maturity in line with their overall digital transformations.

The unit helps clients assess and benchmark their cybersecurity programs and develop a cybersecurity strategy. It also helps clients design and implement a cybersecurity operating model, design overall solutions and select appropriate vendors, manage third-party risk and create and execute cybersecurity awareness and training programs.

“People are one of the biggest risks to enterprise cybersecurity,” said Doug Saylors, partner and co-leader of ISG Cybersecurity. “To combat this problem, enterprises need to strengthen their cybersecurity culture and help people become their own — and their employers’ — best protection against cyber threats.”
