Small Organizations Lack Computer Security Training

It is becoming more apparent with stories like the Sisters of Charity Marian Clinic in Topeka, KS, and the Bullitt County, KY loss, that there is a huge hole where folks just don't know what to do or what not to do. Click here to read the Sisters of Charity story, and here to read the Bullitt County story. Combined, they have lost more than $500,000.

Smaller organizations don't have the funding to do much with Computer Security Awareness training and for sure they don't have the resources to watch for malicious activities on these networks. It is sad but true statement, and it is really taking a huge financial bite out of these organizations.

Computer security is not easy, but with some work, you can protect yourself from most of the malicious stuff out there on the Internet. Can you avoid it completely? Probably not. Especially if you use a PC with a Microsoft Windows operating system like XP, or Vista. I try and post helpful hints for those who don't have a lot of money to invest in computer security. Read through some of my past posts and watch for new content as I will continue to post new ideas to help you.

Stay safe this holiday weekend and have a FABULOUS celebration Saturday night.
