    Everyone Needs to be a Mini-Secuirty Officer Now

    In David Scott’s words, everyone needs to be a mini-Security Officer today. I don't know if everyone can be a mini legal expert, but definitely all activity should be viewed through the prism of security, and that requires awareness and training. I think Mr. Scott, the author, is right: Most individuals and organizations enjoy Security largely as a matter of luck. For some free insight, check out his blog, “The Business-Technology Weave” – you can Google to it, or search on the site IT Knowledge Exchange which hosts it. Anyone else here reading I.T. WARS? I had to read parts of this book as part of my employee orientation at a new job. The book talks about a whole new culture as being necessary – an eCulture – for a true understanding of security, being that most identity/data breaches are due to simple human errors. It has great chapters on security, as well as risk, content management, project management, acceptable use, various plans and policies, and so on. Just Google IT WARS – check out a couple links down and read the interview with the author David Scott at Boston’s Business Forum. (Full title is I.T. WARS: Managing the Business-Technology Weave in the New Millennium). “In the realm of risk, unmanaged possibilities become probabilities.” Great stuff.
