We keep on talking about how important it is to build on security for our computer and our network but we fail to realize that it will ultimately lie on how responsible the assigned user will be when it comes to safeguarding his username and password as far as access to the computer or network is concerned. Apparently, there is always a human error in these cases and if we look at some news briefs, we will notice that majority of hacking or intrusion issues originate at the hands of one person.
This is not actually saying that an assigned user has the ability to control or have companies at the tip of his fingers. Remember, one act of illegal practice can be a cause for legal action. In fact, it is easier to uphold the law on such a person to safeguard the interest of a company. So either way, no person in his right mind would want to bear the burden of being sued and taken to court for something that was bestowed upon him with complete trust.
Hacking is one thing but divulging is another. This is a practice that should be corrected in most cases. People fail to realize the importance of their participation in a network. No matter how great a security barrier is against any outside intruders, security protection includes making sure that the trusted employee is indeed a reliable one. In short, cleaning up the bad vibes and potential threats start internally rather than external.
