The University of California, Berkeley, has a long and illustrious history with California’s tech industry. As such, Berkeley’s top ten guide has long been ‘mandatory reading’ for SME owners looking for an easy-to-digest IT security resource they can share with less tech-informed employees. The resource is an internal student guide – but it has long been a core prerequisite IT security 101 resource. The latest updated and revised addition includes tips of security hygiene, malware prevention and the importance of keeping software updated. The guide also includes a new revision: “You are a target to hackers.” This stark warning highlights the centrality of cyber crime and cyber threats and the power of human agency in countering this endeavour through education.
