Speaker Bio

Robin Lennon (Bylenga) is an industry-recognised and international speaker discussing topics such as human factors in cybersecurity, internal threat management, building a security culture and more recently AI Strategy from a CSO perspective.  As a thought leader, she provides in-depth direction and guidance on a significant blind spot in cybersecurity—The human element. By speaking in various forums, Robin carefully engages, collaborates, and mentors different audiences on the value of human factors in cybersecurity.  Bylenga’s recent thesis on leveraging the Human Factors Analysis Classification System in cybersecurity (HFACS-Cyber) is grounding breaking; this research provides an exclusive insight into the importance of applying an error taxonomy to determine the underlying causal factors that led to a breach.
