RISK AND BUSINESS: Money V Education, which one would lead to better security?

Join Mike Gillespie, Advent IM, and Robert Allen, Kingston Technology as they discuss the changes to working life and how they have led to  a much more mobile workforce, using technologies that are new to many.  To make this work securely everyone needs to be on board from the C-suite onward. Whilst there may be a reported increase in cyber security spend, that does not necessarily mean that businesses will therefore be more secure… How do we mold education to change insecure behaviours and how do we make security more appetising and appealing to engage with at the leadership strata?
