Developing a Security Awareness Strategy
Effective security requires a harmonious blend of working processes, modern technology, and educated people. For many organizations, that last part can be very challenging. Most people know what they need to do to get their jobs done, but how many know that everything they do with a computer has security implications? Properly configured users can be your strongest line of defense--but configuring users is notoriously difficult. When the decision is between being secure and watching the dancing pigs, the dancing pigs win too many times. As more and more attacks target the humans at the computer rather than the software, having an educated user community has never been more important. Kai Axford provides thought-provoking ideas, tips, and resources for raising security awareness in your organization.
