Let’s say it straight, security awareness training is broken. It fails to efficiently prevent mistake to be made, and thus companies to be really protected.
In that tensed context, Human Detection and Response (HDR) is an emerging technology that aims to address the vulnerability of human factor in cybersecurity. It closely monitors user activity for any unusual patterns and promptly responds to mitigate potential data breaches. HDR also provides employees with cybersecurity training to raise their awareness and ability to identify and avoid threats.
It is a complementary technology to traditional cybersecurity categories such as endpoint protection.
Far from being another obscure Gartner acronym, HDR aims at unifying all user-related mitigation under one umbrella.
