J_Brandt.That's a great point about injecting a healthy dose of paranoia as part of a corporate security awareness program. What have you found to be the right amont of scare tactics in user security training. When does too much paranoia seem crazy and counter productive?

Paranoia isn't just for security professionals.  A healthy security awareness program for users looks to promote a little bit of paranoia in everyone doesn't it?

Re: Not crazy but....
Unfortunately I think it is true, especially when you're talking about corporations that are potential targets because they have data that could be valuable in many different ways. I know several mobile security consultants who advise IT managers to start with the assumption that any device has been breached, and go from there in protecting enterprise data and apps. It's a jungle out there!

Not crazy but....
Funny cartoon but is it true? Is paranoia now a part of the job description for IT security professionals? Or maybe I am  just being paraonoid.
