The Colonial Pipeline disaster taught us that people are the main entry point for cybersecurity attacks. The ‘person’ is what needs to be ‘fixed’ or focused on when it comes to cybersecurity awareness, and this change generally does not happen overnight. Changing behavior is built on small incremental improvements, which over time tighten the control limits to improve behavior and minimize risk.
