    This week we speak to Mike Gruen, CISO and CTO and Dr. Daniel Glaser, a neuroscientist, about how humour can help in learning. We talk about how to build effective cyber security awareness programmes, how to positively harness our innate fear of being judged, and how cyber resilience is everybody’s responsibility.
