Addressing Human Vulnerabilities that Bedevil IT Security:
All systems are susceptible to the social engineering techniques that lie at the root of some or all the well publicized security incidents. But why can’t the industry do more to design out the human vulnerabilities that continue to bedevil even the best security systems?
It is important to understand that good security is ultimately a people issue and that while updating rules in technology to keep pace with threats is reasonably easy, changing human behaviour – and thus reducing the risks of social engineering – is much more difficult to do and maintain consistently.
Automated intelligence and control is the logical next step for how security management solutions solve problems in more complex, fast moving environments. The urgency to make business exception management and end-user policy management more fit for purpose is driven by how regulators are becoming more proactive and demanding.
