According to new research from Zone Alarm, Generation Y (who were born in the 90s and are now 18-25) are overconfident in security knowledge which can pose a problem for IT security.
Gen Y has grown up with technology, the first generation to have computers since a young age. As a result, many people in this generation consider themselves knowledgeable when it comes to computers, the internet, social media and security. The question becomes: does effective security come from knowledge or from caution? Turns it, caution may be the key.
The last figure is the most startling given that security training can only go so far - the rest is up to employees to follow the security training provided. You should take a look at your employee demographics in considering your employee training methods and consider what repercussions there should be for non-compliance.
