Security Awareness for IT Employees
Stating that information security is everyone’s job is not something new; just try asking any person in charge of awareness efforts how many times they have done so. Even if your company has a dedicated security team, it is very important to let every employee know that they have a shared responsibility for the company’s data protection. Since information security is so closely linked to IT protection, most would assume that IT workers would be way ahead of the game, quite aware that they play a major role in data protection and would not stray from secure behavior, following security rules without questioning and helping in the early detection of security related incidents. The simple truth is that most of the time IT employees are among the biggest insider threats to security.
