Fear itself

The world is a scary place right now. While the risk posed by Cyber Security threats is high, there are many organisations and people for whom this is the least of their concerns. 

In a time of unsettled economies & governments, where there are more breaches each week than we would have once seen in a year... how can we change the way we enable and inspire security change to stop trying to scare the terrified and start trying to help.
