Failures of Security starts with U

We continue to deploy sophisticated technologies in security. These technologies include: firewalls, anti-virus, anti-spam, intrusion detection, biometrics, encryption and many more...

The latest phishing attacks provide simplest form of proof to how fragile really is our infrastructure based on on-the-run technology.

Security in today's world requires to very simple elements. Easy to say, but much harder to implement. These elements are:
- up to date skills, knowledge and awareness
- discipline (the process must occur and not be bypassed)

So next time U think security: are your processes and skills up-to-date...
