Building a security-first company culture is a pain for even the most seasoned of sec professionals, but instilling good security habits from day one is key to protecting your team, your technology and your customers from unwanted attacks. Internal sec teams need allies in this pursuit, and whilst not the conventional choice, HR can help. Cyber security is a people problem, and who knows people better than your HR department? From on boarding new employees well to developing ongoing security training and awareness, HR are heavily involved in shaping systems, processes and most importantly - employee behaviour. A security-first culture can't exist without first establishing a culture of psychological safety - where speaking up is routine and the risk of looking dumb is one that can be easily taken. The alternative? Punitive policies, blame and shame that lead to vulnerabilities. If you're going to build a security-first culture in your company, you'd better call HR.
