Throw Away Your Security Gear

Want to make sure your network is safe?

Your best step may be to throw away all of your security gear and software.

What? Isn't the whole point of all that expensive hardware and software to protect your network? How can that possibly keep your network safer?

By throwing it all away, you'll be forced to confront the real, underlying security issues you face. Things like setting up the proper security policies and procedures. Like locking down your hardware. Like educating users how to keep safe from spyware.

Now, I know that I'm overstating the case here. Clearly, you don't want to throw away all of your security gear.
