What if I told you that approaching security with compassion and mindfulness could help you increase the efficacy of your organization’s information security program by 10%? Additionally, what if I also told you that a different approach to communicating security needs could make you, and your coworkers, happier at your respective jobs and personal lives? Brain scans show that acts of kindness register more like eating chocolate than, say, fulfilling an obligation. The same pleasure centers light up when we receive a gift as when we donate to charity. Neuroscientists refer to this as “the warm glow” effect.

No, this isn’t a Deepak Chopra life coaching session but rather a talk about how you can wield scientific evidence to entice people to care about something important. This session will explore the benefits of approaching organizational cybersecurity through mindfulness, compassion, and neuroscience versus our traditional heavy-handed methods. Perhaps we can harness this “warm glow” effect to collaboratively make our organizations increasingly more secure.

Attendees will learn how to achieve results without blindly forcing adherence to the rule of law, caring about security until it’s no longer useful or productive, and how to live your life without agonizing over the results.
