Psychology and Fear in Security Decision Making

The human brain is wired for survival – fear helps us determine what’s safe and unsafe. But sometimes, fear can hold us back from making the right decisions, especially as business leaders. In this session, we interview TierPoint’s Chief Security Officer, Paul Mazzucco, to discuss the psychology of fear when it comes to making those business decisions and how you can use that fear to effectively manage security for your organization. TierPoint Security Product Manager, PJ Farmer, moderates. In this session, our speakers discuss:

  • why fear can be a double-edged sword when making security decisions for your environment
  • the biggest factors holding businesses back from making those decisions
  • best practices on how to overcome that fear and create a successful security strategy for your business
