I’ve been at this IT thing for 35 years, and I’ve yet to find an explanation why security should trump convenience that has any appeal to those who lose the convenience. Does this sound familiar?Why do I always have to use the VPN? It’s a pain. It’s slow; not like when I’m at the office. I don’t need the aggravation.
Telling employees, friends, and family members to avoid open (unencrypted) Wi-Fi networks is a particularly difficult sell. So I’ve been trying a different approach. Instead of only offering explanations, I’m showing what can happen if a security measure is ignored.
It’s been hard, but I’m making progress, thanks, in large part, to someone who ironically likes it when people use open Wi-Fi networks. It makes his job easier.
