“We recommend to our business clients to create a written security policy,” said May. “Most companies do not have one, larger companies do, but all businesses should have one.” Additionally May explained that “a company’s biggest security threat is its employees.”
While talking about various aspects of security policies, May said that while working with clients to create policies, he has learned that it builds a higher level of trust with those he works with.
