Tessian’s mission is to secure the human layer by empowering people to do their best work, without security getting in their way.
2021 has been a huge year for Human Layer Security (HLS).
Both Gartner and Forrester recognized the benefits of this new approach. The RE: Human Layer Security podcast hosted by Tessian Co-Founder and CEO, Tim Sadler, received over 5,000 downloads, and nearly 6,000 security, risk, compliance, and business leaders attended the Human Layer Security Summit.
This represents a fundamental shift in how we all approach cybersecurity, and firmly cements HLS as a new category in the space.
Instead of focusing on networks, endpoints, and devices, security teams are now focusing on people. They’re adopting next-gen technology that tackles human error, they’re re-thinking standard security awareness training (SAT) in favor of more engaging and effective alternatives, and are prioritizing strong, inclusive security cultures that make people a part of the solution, instead of just an intractable problem.
Such a shift demands a watering hole; a space where the larger security community can share ideas and best practices, actively engage with one another, and drive the industry forward, together.
So, we’ve launched just that.
Humanlayersecurity.com is a thought leadership hub with crowd-sourced content from the security community, for the security community. (Because we know the that the #1 source of information for security leaders is…other security leaders…)
In the short-term, it’s an online magazine featuring thought leadership from some of the industry’s most respected (and diverse) voices, including CISOs, ethical hackers, and academics. Long-term, it will evolve to become something living and breathing, with a Slack channel and curated events.
