Psychology & Cyber Crisis Response – Ping Podcast – Episode 39

Episode 39: Psychology & Cyber Crisis Response

Training employees in cybersecurity is a must for a protected organization. But gone are the days when a yearly table-top exercise will keep you covered. Rebecca McKeown, an independent Chartered Psychologist and special advisor to Immersive Labs, joins us on this episode to shed light on micro-drilling, and how best to train for crisis response. After all, cyber attacks are certainly crises. She discusses why this approach of cognitive readiness is effective for a wide range of reasons, and how organizations can implement the technique. We also talk about how remote work makes this even more effective, and how working from home can affect employees in general.

In headlines, hear about the top 25 brands used in phishing attacks. And then, learn about who the most likely targets of malicious emails are – watch out Australia. Finally, we discuss military and nuclear facilities being hit with malware in Kashmir & Pakistan.
