Research Paper: The Seven Dimensions of Security Culture

Gain a deeper understanding of the dimensions that comprise security culture. 

A Comprehensive Resource to Build and Improve Your Organization's Security Culture

Building a strong security culture is an important risk management strategy and can make your organization more resilient to cyber attacks and data breaches. To improve security culture, it is important to be able to assess what kind of security culture you have already, evaluate its strengths and weaknesses, and deploy the best methods for improvement.

This research paper explores why security culture is measured using these seven dimensions, what they are and how they can be influenced. This scientific framework is used in the KnowBe4 Security Culture Survey and was developed by CLTRe, a KnowBe4 company. To date, the seven dimensions are used to benchmark security culture by organizations in the US, China, and more than eight European countries.
