Join Mandy Huth for an in-depth discussion in this video Building a security-minded culture, part of Security Matters (To Everyone).
(upbeat music) - Creating a culture of security is about creating an organization where your people are thinking about how their day-to-day activities impact security each and every day. How do you enable building that kind of culture? The way that we enable a security culture, is by motivating our employees to care about security and the process. The way that we can do that, is we align security with our organizational goals.
If you talk to an employee about security and how it increases revenue, and that ties to their bonus, I bet you they care then! The other thing your employees need to understand is that being security minded they're helping to protect your company. Your reputation, as a brand, is critical. Their role in that is day-to-day security mindedness. One thing that we need to be cognizant of, is that higher regulation is going to require an increased level of awareness and education. So I talked about me going crazy if I saw one more unlocked computer screen, (loud beeping) employees feel the same way about those annual videos.
60 minute videos?! Are you kidding me? Boring. So security mindedness is about behaviors, and you have to create a habit. So I want you to take some time, go Google it, let's talk a little bit about gamification. So let's make security a game, video games are fun! (video game noises) And, with that game, comes rewards. (video game noises) Consider making security an interactive game! When we see positive behavior, our employees earn points.
And, as they accumulate points, they can get rewards. It could be movie tickets, it could be coffee, it might be about getting a shirt, or a medal that says "I won that game!" (plink) Yes! Sometimes recognition is just as important as the monetary rewards that are available. In this way, you can create an army of soldiers ready to march on your security war. Remember, security mindedness is a way of life. Let's make it like a game too! Build it, and they will come.
