IT security policies are aspirational goals because they have so many exceptions. The difference between being hacked and being safe could come down to one employee. In this episode, Tom Hollingsworth sits down with Jasper Bongertz and Brian Knudtson to talk about how security polices are inherently fragile and can cause people to have more faith in them than they should. Also discussed is how people are not always the problem in these situations and how companies can do a better job of crafting documents that reflect real-world applications of protection.
