The Weakest Link looks at one of the biggest issues in cyber security: how to protect organisations from their own employees. Many cyber threats don't involve hackers using clever software to penetrate company networks; threats can often involve employees acting in ways that, accidentally or deliberately, leak information or damage assets without a hacker being involved at all. Emerging technologies and behavioural changes - driven by cloud computing and people using their own smartphones and tablets for work - are starting to make these threats more common and far more serious. Written to help anyone understand how information security has become the responsibility of individual employees, it shows exactly what they can do to protect company systems and data. Effective solutions need to go beyond simple security awareness and show how to create a complete culture of security. Individuals can then use this learned behaviour to keep themselves digitally safe at work and in their personal lives.
