In March, Tessian hosted its first Human Layer Security Summit. In June, we hosted our second. And, earlier this month, we hosted our third. 

Combined, that’s 20 separate sessions, with nearly two dozen industry leaders from the world’s top institutions, who covered topics ranging from deepfakes and the 2020 US election to the challenges associated with remote-working and the effectiveness of people-centric security strategies

Now, you can access all of this content on-demand in one place. Introducing Human Layer Security On-Demand.

While every session is packed with valuable information, we’ve rounded up the top five videos you should watch now. 

Safeguarding the 2020 Elections, Disarming Deep Fakes

Watch now

If you weren’t concerned about deepfakes before, you will be after watching this interview. According to  Nina Schick, Author of “Deep Fakes and the Infocalypse: What You Urgently Need to Know”, “This is not an emerging threat. This threat is here. Now.”  

And, while we tend to associate deepfakes with election security, this is a threat that affects business’ too. 

After watching the full session, make sure you check out this article for tips to help you and your employees spot impersonations: Deepfakes: What are They and Why are They a Threat?

Why People Fall for Social Engineering in a Crisis

Watch now

To err is human. This is something we all know fundamentally. But, do you know why people make mistakes? 

In this session, Ed Bishop, Tessian CTO and Co-founder Ed Bishop discussed The Psychology of Human Error with Jeff Hancock, Communications Professor at Stanford University and David Kennedy, Co-Founder and Chief Hacking Officer at TrustedSec. 

The bottom line: people make more mistakes that compromise security (like falling for phishing scams and sending misdirected emails) when they’re stressed, distracted, anxious, or and tired. And, as you might expect, people have been even more stressed, distracted, anxious, and tired over the last several months giving the global pandemic, new working conditions, and social and political unrest. 

How to Thrive in our New Normal with Stephane Kasriel

Watch now

In this interview, Tessian CEO and Co-founder Tim Sadler interviewed Stephane Kasriel, former CEO of Upwork. Why? Because Upwork has maintained a hybrid remote-working structure across 500 cities for 20 years, which meant (and still means!) that he’s in a better position than most to offer advice around adapting and overcoming challenges related to distributed workforces.

Stephane offered incredible advice that both security and business leaders should heed now and going forward as employees continue adjusting to their new work set-ups.

Perspectives on Risk Profiles From Around the World

Watch now

At Tessian, we know that diverse perspectives lead to diverse solutions. That’s why for this session, we brought together Elvis Chan, Supervisory Special Agent of the FBI and Bobby Ford, Global CISO of Unilever. Both shared their observations on the evolving cybersecurity risks and how to keep organizations protected. 

One of the key takeaways? The secure thing to do should be the easiest thing to do. 

If you’re a security leader trying to figure out how to make security more frictionless, this is a must-watch.
