SoSafe, one of the fastest-growing cybersecurity awareness providers worldwide, has published its Human Risk Review 2022.

A survey by Allianz Insurance also shows that cyberincidents are the number one business risk worldwide. At the RSA Conference 2021, Chuck Robbins, CEO, Cisco, spoke of US$6 trillion in damages per year. The interface between man and machine remains the number one entry point – more than 85% of all attacks start with the human factor.

“With the Human Risk Review 2022 we want to provide insights into current trends and developments in the European cyberthreat landscape. Our goal is to further raise awareness of this topic – especially for the ‘human factor’ in information security,” said Dr. Niklas Hellemann, Managing Director of SoSafe. “Employees need more than security guidelines. Employees can be activated as a ‘human firewall’ to sustainably reduce the security risk. To achieve this, a security culture must be established in companies that involve people and supports them in identifying cyberthreats and behaving safely.”

The Human Risk Review 2022 helps with this. It gives security managers recommendations for action to strengthen the security culture in companies holistically and sustainably. With the help of SoSafe’s ‘Behavioral Security Model’, organisations can significantly and effectively minimise human risks based on psychological approaches. SoSafe’s data shows that systematic awareness measures reduce risks by up to 90%.
