2024 Human Risk Management Conference Call for Abstracts


HRM Conference returns for its third annual virtual conference on June 20, 2024. HRM Con 2024 will bring together cybersecurity practitioners, providers, and partners together to connect with the human risk management community, share best practices, and build lasting relationships.

The HRM Con 2024 Call for Abstracts includes four themes that will serve as the basis for four tracks of interactive programming, maximizing opportunities for presenters to showcase their accomplishments, outcomes, and innovations. 

Conference Tracks

The four conference themes for HRM Conference 2024 focus on the four key elements of a comprehensive HRM program. We invite submissions that align with the themes described below.

Human Risk Quantification

Detect and measure human security behaviors by identifying vigilant and vulnerable members of your workforce. Use data from your existing identity and security tools to quantify human risk across the full spectrum of security risks including account compromise, data loss, malware, phishing, social engineering, and training compliance.

Risk-Based Policy and Training Interventions

Initiate policy and training interventions based upon human risk. Interventions should be based on best practices and provide next steps that can be taken in real-time to address risk such as nudges, reminders, microlearning modules, and policy changes (such as updating passwords).

Workforce Education and Enablement

Educate and enable the workforce to protect against cybersecurity risks. Empower individual employees, managers, and executives to measure progress and track vigilance across teams and departments.

Positive Security Culture

Build a positive security culture by empowering your workforce to actively participate in security vigilance, eliminate needless compliance activity, and incorporate intelligent capabilities that simplify security compliance.

  • • Practitioners: Security Awareness Training, Governance Risk Compliance, and Security Operations Center leaders
