John Scott is an instructor for the SANS Institute, teaching classes all around the world on managing human risk, as well as being an international speaker on security culture change. He also works as a cybersecurity researcher, using human behavioural data to drive risk management.

Previously, he worked in a senior security transformation role at BT and was Head of Security Education for the Bank of England for nearly 7 years, running an internationally recognised culture change programme for the UK’s central bank. John’s key passion is the need for security to be a champion of their colleagues, rather than just being the ‘department of NO’. He hates the phrase ‘users are the weakest link.’
