End user security education is a lot like evangelism, so why is it so hard to get people to do what we ask of them? This is a continuing battle in a corporate environment as well as for followers of Jesus Christ. How can I influence those around me to do something that I do and that I want them to do? We need to reframe our arguments and understand the problems that we have. So come and let’s hack out what we need to do, we may not have a definitive answer and that’s okay we can start a dialogue on what we need to do.
