English term or phrase:that will be a tricky order
If that makes Silverstone sound like a first-class hardnose, let it be known that he's the same man who, to build students' general awareness of security issues, signed off on the distribution of Pez dispensers shaped like bugs. That's because—his get-tough policies notwithstanding—Silverstone is in complete agreement with his fellow security officers who say it's education, not technology, that has the best chance over time of teaching students how to be responsible computing citizens.
Gartner's Pescatore maintains that will be a tricky order; tomorrow's employees likely face a different set of awareness issues than today's. "In corporate America, we have 37-year-olds still clicking on attachments, where many college kids today came of age already knowing not to click on a virus. They're used to spam, and they know not to trust e-mail addresses," he observes. "On the other hand, they've grown up in an age where they don't see file-sharing and intellectual property theft as a problem."
