For 5 years, we have experimented with technology, people, and process controls at RELX, all designed to create an integrated framework for phishing mitigation. I'll speak about technology we've adopted (and that we haven't). I'll speak about failures in industry efforts (e.g., digital signatures). I'll speak about behavioral science and how we have adopted its concepts to drive behavior change. I'll speak about the "human is the weakest link/humans are our strongest link" debate raging in the industry today. I'll tell you where we still struggle as a company and as an industry. This topic will drive conversation, because everyone gets phishing emails; and everyone thinks they have a solution.
