On The Topic
A mature approach to information technology requires a basic understanding of its possibilities and the processes behind it. Most people have sufficient knowledge to use the Internet and relevant technology. However, this knowledge is not always sufficient to deal responsibly and self-determined with one's own data.
The problem has long been recognised. Security Awareness is supposed to solve it. But the challenges are great and many - missing communication expertise, support and resources are just a few.
The SWITCH Security Awareness Day aims at giving some insights into the different possible ways to deal with security awareness while pointing out where to get support and what is most crucial for being successful.
