Why User Adoption in Enterprise Security is Low – Juliet Okafor – ESW #222



Security technology roll-outs often fail because of the following:
1) Weak Security Culture – users don’t see value or understand the importance of taking action.
2) Security teams often fail to consider user experience in purchase, configuration, set-up and training of security technology, like endpoint security
3) End User communication about new technology is not communicated to the right users, at the right time, during the right stage of the project. Visit https://www.securityweekly.com/esw for all the latest episodes!
