And, with the growing concern about the Insider Threat to businesses, there is specialized training in the state of the practice that needs to be given to personnel who are launching an insider threat program. In addition, regular employees need to be trained at the beginning of a program, and on a regular basis after the program is underway.

Allan, I wrote a book focused on the individual and small businesses. Any time I get an opportunity to speak to small businesses about their information and technology security needs I jump at it. There's definitely a need that's not being met. I'm working on a second edition with more emphasis on small business owners and would appreciate any recommendations.

I passed my Security+ years ago. Every year I'm witnessing that it's not enough. And employers only use the certification as a door stop....you qualify to talk about employment IF you have the certification.

It seems that most of the security breaches are not a technology failure but a people, process failure. Education has a much better ROI then technology, but not as sexy and the industry sees no value in solving the problem, only in leveraging the fear to promote their latest product. So how would you propose increasing the incentive to increase knowledge?

There isn’t enough discussions with small businesses and sometimes they don’t even have training to raise awareness. As for the consumers, I wish that there are more campaigns to help us understand the impacts. How often do we see commercials advertising to consumers like us? Rarely. People might not pay attention until the breach really negatively impacts their lives. Otherwise, people go on their business as usual. However, I do see schools trying to educate the kids as early as kindergarten or first grade.

I tend to agree with Ricardo. I have always said that the underlying reason for IT failure is the relentless focus on technology. A more healthy focus is on People & Process. The technology is an important enabler but the other issues come first and, in fact, define what is required of the technology. That would be my message to SMEs. Actually, I would submit that prioritising technology is a conflict of interest in data protection.
