People = Risk

Recommended Posts

I was pretty bummed yesterday hearing the long line of people bashing Federal Government email and admitting that they use personal email for official business.


This note has nothing to do with the politics of it, but what good does it do us to spend tens of billions of dollars a year on safeguards and filters just to have a user - any user - circumvent those controls?


It's a good reminder of the need for continued good training, awareness and communication about why these safety measures are important. That won't fix it all ... I imagine few understand risk better than General Powell, and yet it seems he broke the rules. But maybe some will get it.


At least we security people can count on job security!
