#1577 Fighting the person should be cybersecurity best practice: Nuix
One major mistake organisations and governments are making in protecting their systems is neglecting the importance of focusing on the person at the end of the attack, according to Keith Lowry, senior vice president at Sydney-based intelligence, analytics, and cybersecurity software firm Nuix.

The 25-year cyber-veteran said that the majority of all insider threat programs he has been privy to begin with the foundation of technology, and that in reality, the foundation of a counter-insider threat program needs to start with recognising there is a person at the other end.

"It's about people using technology -- it's not about technology by itself -- and too many people focus on the fact that it's all technology and therefore the answer to it must be a piece of technology," Lowry said.
