Lumension Security Launches Interactive Office Game To Educate IT Professionals On 10 Most Common Security Risks Within The Workplace

Educational Campaign Offers Tips and Top Technologies to Help Cure Office Headaches

Scottsdale, Ariz. (PRWEB) August 13, 2008 -- According to a survey conducted by Ponemon Institute, 49 percent of data breaches occur due to lost or stolen laptops or other devices such as USB flash drives. Furthermore, 53 percent of organizations would never know what data was stored on a lost USB device. While mobile devices, storage media and other office technologies are designed to enhance productivity, they are creating huge security gaps for enterprises today.

To help bring awareness to 10 most common security risks within the workplace, [Lumension Security™, Inc. __title__ Data Protection Software - 30 day free trial], a global leader in security management, has launched an interactive ["The Office at Risk." __title__ Ten Most Common IT Security Risks In The Workplace]

"The Office at Risk" is designed to educate the IT audience about the 10 security risks that may not be top of mind for IT professionals. In addition, IT professionals will learn what they can do to address these security shortcomings, key technologies such as Vulnerability Management, [Data Protection __title__ Endpoint Security Solutions], and Endpoint Protection to cure office headaches.

The interactive online game allows visitors to click on IT scenarios that may or may not be a threat to the office environment such as employees downloading MP3s, visiting malicious websites, etc. Visitors will have a checklist of 10 security risks to identify throughout the game while also learning more about the security threats, statistics, and more importantly, what technologies are available to help combat those threats. Once the visitor identifies all 10 risks, they will automatically win a 1GB Lumension Security encrypted USB stick loaded with an IT Security Survival Kit. They will also be entered to win 1 of 3, 1-year-500 node Lumension Security Software suite subscriptions, with a free HP server included.

Lumension Security's Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing C. Edward Brice stated: "Today's technology and business environment is highly dynamic. With the evolution of new, sophisticated attacks that use multiple vectors to penetrate the security infrastructure combined with increasing insider risks, enterprises are challenged with constantly evolving their security strategy to stay ahead of the shifting threat. However, while there are many security risks that can be addressed with technology, we believe the human factor remains the biggest risk, whether it's unintentional or malicious. The goal behind "The Office at Risk" is to not only educate the IT professionals on the security risks technology introduces to the workplace, but also common human errors that can have a major impact on the organization's brand, business, and customer loyalty.
