We’re happy to be joined by two renowned thought leaders on this episode. #MillenniumLive welcomes Marc Dupuis, from the University of Washington, and Karen Renaud, from the University of Strathclyde. Learn all about how these academics began working together, and the research they’ve been conducting over the years, which focuses on the idea that fear tactics are not the best approach for employers in cybersecurity. Instead, taking a human-centered approach could be a strong solution in strengthening the cybersecurity workforce.
