Privacy and Security.

In this open series, you can contribute shows that are on the topic of Privacy and Security

This is the beginning of a series where I am going to discuss how to handle and tackle security as a people problem. We often lose sight of the trees for the forest and vice versa. Let's get out from behind our desks and go meet the people that need our help, even if they don't know it yet.

Great show

I loved the show, and I'm looking forward to more. I was an IT Project Manager, and at one time I was working at a hospital where the IT department implicitly viewed its role as "We are here to stop you from making mistakes". Naturally, the rest of the hospital viewed them as the "enemy", and as a result I noticed that individual departments took to setting up their own servers outside of the IT department. So in effect the IT department was so focused on security that they achieved insecurity.

Thank you!

Thanks for the comments. It makes me sad every time I hear about IT Departments and/or Security teams doing things like that. We are supposed to be facilitators and enablers for the people who do make the money for the company. Thank you for listening and I think you will like the future shows I have planned.
