A Security Awareness Program vs. A New Firewall

I had the opportunity to talk to a large group of network administrators and computer professionals for colleges, libraries and K-12 schools in Missouri at the Morenet Connections and HELIX conference this past week about the importance of a security awareness program to their overall networks security.

Far too often we get caught up trying to solve network security problems that could be easily addressed with a “lunch and learn” with a complicated and expensive hardware solution. 

When was the last time you sit down with a pizza and explained to your end users:

  • Why good passwords matter?
  • Why they should use different passwords on all sites?
  • How to protect their bank account?
  • Why they should use 2FA on their accounts?

It will cost you $20 and likely do more than a $30,000 firewall could do.
