    Why do we eat french fries, despite knowing they are bad for our health? Because awareness alone is not sufficient to change user habits. In this workshop, you'll hear about the latest research on behavioral psychology and the "habit cycle." Humans execute more than 40% of their daily routines without conscious thinking, performing tasks like trying shoe laces and changing car gears. You'll learn how these automated habits are formed and stored, and how we can change them to help improve information security practices.

    The presentation will cover the following:
    • Why is awareness is not enough?
    • Common flaws in security awareness campaigns
    • Irrationality of the human mind
    • Understanding individual habits
    • Practical IT security use cases
    • How to use a keystone habit for changing organizational culture
    • An actionable playbook including 30-, 90, and 180-day plans.
