Mistakes People Make that Lead to Security Breaches
This list was created in October 2001 and I was curious on people's opinions of how far we've come.
The Five Worst Security Mistakes End Users Make
All but number 5 still seem to be hot spots.
The Seven Worst Security Mistakes Senior Executives Make was covered in this thread
The Ten Worst Security Mistakes Information Technology People Make or should it say competent IT people make.
For a competent Admin all of these should be a non-issue or number 11
Allowing untrained, uncertified people to take responsibility for securing important systems.
The only real issue I see as a big issue is Number 10. I think no matter how competent your IT staff is, there is still a drop off in education. Although if the user's knew everything where would we be? ;)
