QOTD human dimension to security

In February 2009, the federal government was presented with a new report identifying strategic objectives for improved cyber-security. Produced by the Institute for Information Infrastructure Protection (I3P), the report examines the cyber-security challenges facing the economic, physical, and human infrastructures and called for making cyber-security a national priority.
People must be engaged as a positive force to improve cyber security. Information security systems must be easy to use by non-IT professionals; awareness and education campaigns must be directed at the public and private sectors; and security training should be taught in schools.
