Companies need new approach to prevent breaches in 2015: Howard Solomon

Security & PrivacyCDN 2015 tech predictions

It’s up to employees, not IT to prevent security breaches in 2015, says Howard Solomon, former editor at ITWorldCanada.com

In the year 2015, the ability of IT to detect network intrusions won’t improve. There will be more stunning attacks, so your job in the short run is defense. Train staff on best security practices, including how not to get suckered in phishing ploys. Do awareness testing to keep them sharp, and do penetration testing to find your weaknesses.
