A DUH Moment For Security

Here’s a “DUH Moment” for you… an article on ComputerWorldUK about how the biggest weak link in data security is people, especially people whose laptops are lost or stolen.

I can’t imagine WHY Captain Obvious bothered to find this out, it’s got to be one of the most obvious things there is. People are almost ALWAYS the weakest link in any security situation and they always will be… they talk too much, get careless, forget passwords, write passwords down, leave computers running unattended, visit websites that are launchpads for malware, click on phishing links, you name it.

I fully expect that if somebody does a similar research 1,000 years from now they’ll come up with the same results.
