News that Google employees are to be treated to a security awareness program from next month is a positive move, but makes me wonder exactly what the sleepy giant has been doing up til now. Google has been rightly criticized for several privacy breaches already, with the WiFi data captured by Google's snooper vans a recent example that is still rumbling on. The news piece on TechShout implies that Google's awareness program will cover privacy, but makes no mention of the myriad other information security issues. Personally, given Google's lackluster response to the privacy complaints, I get the distinct feeling that Google's management just don't get security. I just hope Google's awareness program has messages for management as well as the workforce.
