    In the chain of business security, humanity is the weakest link.

    Even with the most stringent and sophisticated suite of protection, the risk of your business-critical data being stolen is ever present, especially if your employees are unaware (or even worse, apathetic) of the security risk they pose. Precautions can be made against data breaches. Devices and systems can be safeguarded from outside attack.

    Despite this, every business owner should always consider the human factor as the most important one in data protection.

    To bring that same factor into focus, we here at Trend Micro worked together with research firm The Ponemon Institute, in an effort to help business owners understand this factor and  how to better address it. The summarized results of this collaborative effort is available for your perusal here. Along with this report, we also have other key materials you may find helpful:

    The human factor may be the weakest link, but that doesn’t mean it has to remain that way.

    Update as of April 4, 2012 4:06 AM (PST)

    Never underestimate the impact of the human factor when it comes to data protection. As Trend Micro’s CTO Raimund Genes states, in order to protect company assets, it is the responsiblity of security professionals to educate users on what and what not to reveal online. For more of his insights, you may watch the video The Human Factor of Targeted Attacks.

      Hi guys, as Compliance Manager here, I’d like to attach your “The Waekest Link in Data Protection – Human Factor” Infographic to a monthly “newsletter” I do for our staff. Are you able to provide me with a version that can be legibly printed? When I try to copy and print the above version, the text is blurred.

      Many thanks.
