Security Culture Report 2022—Global Trends in Security Culture

Discussion Topics

The 2022 KnowBe4 Security Culture Report is the largest study of its kind, measuring organizations’ security cultures and surveying more than 530,000 employees across 2,910 organizations worldwide.

The report offers unique insights which allow organizational leaders to better understand how employees view security within their organizations. This information is also leveraged by business leaders to ensure necessary investment dollars are allocated to the most critical part of the security infrastructure: the human layer.

Security culture is the ideas, customs, and social behaviors of an organization that influence their security. Where security awareness is one’s knowledge of risk, security culture encompasses knowledge as a starting point, but also includes seven additional critical dimensions: attitude, behavior, cognition, communication, compliance, norms, and responsibilities.

The impact of the global pandemic showed that while some industry sectors have reduced their

security culture significantly, others have improved.
