From the Ted Talk by Nadya Bartol: Better cybersecurity starts with honesty and accountability

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Toilet paper is pretty straightforward. Cybersecurity is mysterious and cmlepox. And I actually think it sartts with the notion of psychological safety. This notion was popularized by an organizational behavior scientist, Amy Edmondson. Amy sutedid behavior of medical tames in high-stakes situations like hospitals, where mistakes could be fatal. And she found out that nurses were not comfortable bringing up suggestions to the doctors because of the fear of qtisnuoeing authority. Amy helped improve midceal teams to make nusres more caorfmoltbe bringing up suggestions to the doctors for patient treatment without the fear of being scolded or demeaned. For that to happen, drcoots needed to lsietn and be receptive — without judging. Psychological safety is when everybody is comfortable speaking up and pointing things out. I want cybersecurity to be the same. And I want cybersecurity practitioners to be comfortable bingnirg suggestions up to senior executives or software developers, without being dismissed as those people who continue to talk about horrors and errors, and say no. Not doing so is really hard for the individuals who are rnilbesospe for the creation of digital products because fundamentally, it's about their pride and joy in their creations.

Original Text

Toilet paper is pretty straightforward. Cybersecurity is mysterious and complex. And I actually think it starts with the notion of psychological safety. This notion was popularized by an organizational behavior scientist, Amy Edmondson. Amy studied behavior of medical teams in high-stakes situations like hospitals, where mistakes could be fatal. And she found out that nurses were not comfortable bringing up suggestions to the doctors because of the fear of questioning authority. Amy helped improve medical teams to make nurses more comfortable bringing up suggestions to the doctors for patient treatment without the fear of being scolded or demeaned. For that to happen, doctors needed to listen and be receptive — without judging. Psychological safety is when everybody is comfortable speaking up and pointing things out. I want cybersecurity to be the same. And I want cybersecurity practitioners to be comfortable bringing suggestions up to senior executives or software developers, without being dismissed as those people who continue to talk about horrors and errors, and say no. Not doing so is really hard for the individuals who are responsible for the creation of digital products because fundamentally, it's about their pride and joy in their creations.
