Anthony MatsellSecurity


Communicating security values and behaviours to its employees can strengthen the resilience of an organization to security breaches and threats in addition to physical and technological measures. However, messages around security may get diluted amongst an organization’s other communications, and so it is vital that security is built up from an employee’s first day in an organization.

User Perspective conducted research to explore how organizations across a range of industries delivered security messages during employee induction. From this, common features and challenges to induction were drawn together to better understand what can contribute to effective messaging towards employees.
