Which Is Stronger, Security Tools or Training?

Redmond columnist Don Jones poses a lot of interesting questions. The great thing is he usually has the perfect answer.

The latest is whether all these great security tools are making us lax and over dependent on technology. In fact, how often does your shop conduct security training?  See, you may already be lax.

Shops that are overconfident in their security apparatus may be less secure in a way than if they had nothing to protect them. That's because without training, your end users are apt to do all kinds of dumb things -- the kind of things social engineering hackers love to talk them into.

Do you do enough security training? You tell me at dbarney@redmongmag.com.
