Sophos booklet helpful in corporate security awareness

(M.E.Kabay, NetworkWorld) The recently-released free Sophos booklet, "10 myths of safe web browsing", is a simple, short summary of some basic Web safety information that can serve our purposes in raising security consciousness and involvement.

Each of the following myths is discussed in a short paragraph:
- Myth No.1: The Web is safe because I've never been infected by malware
- Myth No.2: My users aren't wasting time surfing inappropriate content
- Myth No.3: We control Web usage and our users can't get around our policy
This booklet would make a perfect subject for a brown-bag lunchtime discussion among the IT staff; it could be used as the basis for a user-education session to spark discussion of the issues.
