    We in the security field are very much aware of the risks posed by connecting to the Internet when not at home or at work. When designing a secure network, it is common for security people to describe the Internet as “the Wild West” and in many ways this is a very apt analogy.

    Security practitioners argue all the time (one view | opposing view) about the usefulness of end-user awareness training. While I argue in this blog that we need to try to design security so as to be transparent as possible—so that people don’t have to think about it—that can only be taken so far. We need our users to help us help them be secure. If they don’t know something could possibly be a risk and we can’t build in automated protections, they can’t make good choices.
