Technorati, 

Yes. At the same time you wonder if it's not stating the obvious. If it would, we wouldn't be having these discussions, though.

Technorati, 

Prevention and education are two great tools everyone should consider in order to avoid security problems as much as possible. It's important to always be vigilant. In-house training is one option.

Another option is encouraging employees to attend security conferences to stay updated, listen to the experts, and have security always present. Everyone in the company needs to be involved.

Re: On Another Note.....
Technorati, 

I don't think it's employees who don't take security measures seriously. It's more a lack of information about those security measures. This is why it's so important for enterprises to always have in-company training on security. how many times we have heard about employees who innocently have made a terrible mistake? Of course, there is also a percentage of people who are simply careless no matter what.

Treat them all as insiders.
Protecting against insider threats is arguably even more important -- since most external attacks ultimately rely on gaining some form of insider access.
