You’re Being Watched Online [Infographic] | Information Security | Scoop.it
Yes, everything you do online is being tracked. Your searches, the videos you watch, transactions, social events, even crime. Scandalous crimes. With a little help, especially with our guides, you're still able to remain anonymous on the Internet. But understanding how you're being tracked is an important lesson, as are the little things you can…

Interesting and something to consider

Francisco Pontes Estevan's curator insight, February 2, 5:14 AM

Sí, todo lo que haces en línea es rastreado. Tus búsquedas,  los videos que miras, tus transacciones electronicas, todas las paginas que visitas...etc.  Entender cómo te están siguiendo es una lección importante para aprender las cosas que puedes hacer para mantener minimamente tu privacidad.

How to create security awareness with incentives

How to create security awareness with incentives | Information Security | Scoop.it

One of the reasons many security awareness programs fail is that they rely on a "push" mentality, where they force employees to take awareness training and expect or, more likely, hope that employees will seek out additional training, because it is the right thing to do. While many there are programs that do this that are successful, they are relatively rare.

 

Recently, we began experimenting with helping our clients implement gamification techniques, which switches the whole awareness paradigm. Instead of employees being forced to take training or risk potential punishment, employees do the right things by default and seek out additional training, because they want to.

 

Too many people confuse the term gamification to mean that you create a game to do awareness training, and there are many companies who are developing such games. They can be useful, but much like a poster, newsletter, or phishing campaign, they are just a single component in what should be a well rounded security awareness program.
