Humans: The Biggest Risk to Cyber Security | Jagdish Mahapatra | TEDxGateway

Jagdish Mahapatra talks about the single most important pain point that fails our cyber systems - HUMANS. Governments and industry are doing what seems like the obvious thing to do â€" spending billions of dollars to develop and implement new technologies designed to stop the bad guys before they can get through the front door. Yet, even though we have some of the best and brightest minds on the case, there are still major limitations to what we can do with silicon and code. Despite our predilection for using technology to solve what appear to be technological problems, one lament that echoes in information security circles is that we’re not doing enough to deal with cybersecurity’s biggest, most persistent threat â€" human behaviour. Today the biggest threat to Cybersecurity is us and the failings of our behaviour. Home has become the centre of gravity for all big breaches and we are very vulnerable there as we are modelling wrong behaviour. Jagdish Mahapatra is a Cybersecurity Expert with experience across the Asia Pacific Region trying to build new Business models to make Govt and Banks more secure. He has worked extensively in India as CEO of large Cybersecurity Company to build secure framework for Govt. of India, Large Banks and Companies and for Consumers at large.
