It doesn’t make sense to try to solve what is essentially a human problem solely with technical means. Educating users leads to an alert organization in which users report every suspicious thing they encounter.
IDENTIFY AND ADDRESS INTERNET SECURITY RISKS IMMEDIATELY
Once a risk is identified, users and IT professionals must be committed to addressing it, with the support of executives. In a perfect world, security professionals would strive to create a risk-free environment. That’s not possible, however, because some degree of risk is inherent in every action an organization takes. Simply telling people what not to do is rarely effective, particularly if what they’re doing saves time and produces positive results. It is more effective to focus more on implementing actions that all members of your organization are comfortable with in order to achieve the best method of cyber-security for you.
