Guest Keynote: Difficulties in viewing cyber risks as our own - Internal barriers to managing cybersecurity in organizations

Today, few organizations or employees are unaware of the importance of cybersecurity. However, there are countless examples of organizations that are reluctant to implement cybersecurity interventions and employees who fail to comply with information security policies. One of such reluctance and failure is the inability to perceive the likelihood of cybersecurity incidents or troubles occurring to themselves. The session will illustrate how we have difficulties to see cyber risks as our own. The speaker hopes that this session will contribute to a better understanding of human characteristics and the promotion of cybersecurity management.
