Too Much Focus On Hackers, Warns Security Expert
The San Ramon, Calif.-based security education company Friday published its findings in a white paper called the Human Perimeter.
"It's one of the unfortunate realities of security," says Hackademia CEO Neal O'Farrell. "The more the enterprise invests in the physical and technology perimeters, the more vulnerable the human perimeter becomes. The more successful the enterprise is at keeping intruders out of their networks, the more likely intruders are to focus on vulnerable employees instead."
O'Farrell says the paper was published after company trainers recognized that many successful attacks are exploits of poor user habits and not anonymous outside hacker attacks.
