The 7 Dimensions of 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 7 dimensions, what they are and how they can be influenced. To date, the seven dimensions are used to benchmark security culture by organizations in the USA, China, and more than 8 European countries.
