"Managements should realise that it not the devices that are a security problem, it is the people. It is usually people, not the technology that are the weakest link.”

Devices at work: People, not technology, are the weakest link

Charles Batchelor
Financial Times
27 February 2012

 

PA’s David Elton, IT expert, is quoted in the Financial Times, The Connected Business special report on mobile communications. The article looks at how data can be leaked through use of modern devices in the workplace, but often it is people’s actions rather than the technology that causes the problem. David talks about why security should not just be blamed on technology.

David explains: “The question is: How do you get value from these trends rather than just cracking down? Managements should realise that it's not the devices that are a security problem, it is the people. It is usually people, not the technology that are the weakest link.”
