TOP STORY

  • 100% of respondents in the 2017 IT Risks in Government Survey just published say employees are their largest security threat. Wired says human nature is the biggest challenge in security. And CERT’s CVD Guide says in the conclusion “... it’s not just the technology that falls short of our ideals.” Humans. We’re the problem but also the solution. As the authors of the CERT Guide say “We fix what we can, mitigate what we can’t fix, and remain vigilant over what we can’t mitigate.” #togetherwehitharder
