Biggest Security Threat becomes Human Factor

Two stories published within days of each other reporting on the current biggest challenge: the human factor. At least one of my fellow bloggers, Jeff Evenson over at CulturedSecurity.com has made the human factor in security the focus of his writings.

The security threats have "more to do with human error and the usability of advanced authentication systems than any technical security problem." -- AlZomai (Web banking risk down to human error)

and

"Human error has become the biggest security concern for IT directors." -- Research report from Secure Computing (VUNet)
