Paul Mah has long advocated the need to conduct periodic security training for non-IT employees.  Untrained staffers are far more likely to ignore good security practices or fall prey to social-engineering attempts on the company.  Unfortunately, most SMBs consider the time spent on training to be a waste of resources.

Just started work at an SMB?  Or perhaps you are heading out on your second interview for the position of IT manager, and will have the opportunity to ask some questions of your own.  To help develop a good feel for the challenges ahead – or perhaps to better appreciate the state of security in your current organization, feel free to do a quick run-through of this security health checklist to see how you fare.
