Dangerous Security Mistakes That Can Take Your Company Down


Paul Moriarty, director of Internet Content Security at Trend Micro

You listen to the salesman who tells you how wonderful the security product is. You buy it and your team gets it installed into you company's network. More pressing matters command attention and the product sits, running but forgotten. Is it getting updated? Does it need to be reviewed and adjusted periodically? Has it failed in some quiet way without warning you?

Like any other system or application, security products typically need some care and feeding. Ignore this and it will be you who will be taking care of hackers feeding on your corporate data.
