first line of defense...
At RSA I spoke to some people at Akamai who do security awareness for their insiders, and they did something that I found kind of awesome and hilarious. They gave out an award for whoever was doing the best job at securing the organization -- which was often all about preventing social engineering. Whoever won that month had the honor of having a stuffed penguin on their desk until someone else was awarded it. 

And the person who kept winning it was not somebody in IT or some executive.
