It's Cybersecurity Awareness Month...

Do You Know What Your Users Are Doing?


User behavior causes 68% of corporate security breaches.  Users choose convenience over security, blur the line between personal and professional identity, and create risk for you.  Especially true in healthcare, with so many needing quick and easy access to sensitive data, it’s been a problem for decades.  Traditional security awareness efforts haven’t had much impact, so what now?

There’s a new approach emerging to solve this, combining the behavior science behind addictive consumer apps with security automation.  User Behavior Management makes improving security fast, simple, and personally rewarding – and enables organizations to understand and benchmark user-based risk, and target, drive, and measure user behavior.


Based on research and customer operations across 1 million people, Covered Security has delivered a User Behavior Management platform that motivates and empowers people to improve their security – and reduce the risk to their employers.  It’s like Fitbit for user security. 


Please join us to see what Covered Security has learned about the keys to successfully measuring and changing user behavior.


Learning Objectives:

  • Why users are compromised online at a rate 124.7% higher than security professionals
  • Behavior science research findings that can be used to drive user behavior
  • Measuring and benchmarking an organization’s level of user-driven risk
  • How to efficiently target security awareness efforts
  • Effectively driving security behavior change with personalization, gamification, and rewards
