Developing a Security Culture

A security culture is essential in minimising risk across any organisation. Developing a security culture involves careful planning to ensure all stakeholders across an organisation are suitably competent.

According to Professor James Reason, a global leader in accident causation and system research he argues that human error in incidents is a consequence not a cause of the system of work.  Therefore security breaches are often attributable to workers who are not security aware.  This means the better the system the less likely errors, injuries and security-related breaches. 

A reasonable system ensures staff are suitably informed of any potential problems so they can suitably prepare to minimise security and safety risks.

To enhance security awareness it is important that any training or guidance material within any organisation are consistent in content, suitably circulated and regularly reviewed.
