Tomorrow starts National Cyber Security Awareness Month. Many different organizations will be posting security awareness information to help your employees not get cryptolockered and to help your friends and family keep their private selfies private.
I’m going take a different path with this site for the month of October. I’m going to talk about security awareness for US – IT and infosec people.
I have been working in this field for a long time. I see stunningly bad decisions by IT behind the worst incidents I’ve been involved in. These decisions weren’t malicious, but rather demonstrate a lack of awareness about how spectacularly IT infrastructures can fail when they are not designed well, when we misunderstand the limitations of technology and when we’re simply careless while exercising our administrative authority.
