Developing and sustaining an effective security culture is an essential component of a protective security regime and helps mitigate against a range of threats that could cause physical, reputational or financial damage to organizations. Security culture refers to the set of values, shared by everyone in an organization, that determine how people are expected to think about and approach security. Getting security culture right will help develop a security conscious workforce, and promote the desired security behaviours you want from staff.
Many organizations want to embed an effective security culture where security is a collective responsibility shared by everyone in an organization.
