What to Do About Human Error in Security – Darren Kall
Human error is responsible for contributing to 95% of security incidents. Each year the threats to enterprise security grow exponentially. We’re failing to engage employees in protecting valuable company assets and their private information. Technology advances and employee education alone will not eliminate this risk. You will be shocked to learn that Security, IT, and HR are taking the wrong approach to human error. And it’s only going to get worse unless we do something radically different. To combat human error takes a profound understanding of why human errors continue to occur.
