What Avarage Users Need to Know

Security is one of the most tricky thing to accomplish. However, to the most clueless and stupid user, the best security is useless. I have heard several times of security professionals’ dream of computer users needing to acquire a license first before using a computer. This is optimism to the point of absurdity. However, here are some advice that security community experts expects the average user to know:

We can start blaming one another for the failure of Information Security but it will get us nowhere. Security professionals think the user is the problem. The user think the network is the problem. Those who manage the network think its an OS problem. Those to make the OS think its a software problem and those who make the software think the user is the problem. Let’s face it. We are all part of the problem. Now, we need to be part of the solution. Right now, I’ll end here. More to follow later. 😀
