Information security for everyone

Everyone deals with information. But how to make these deals more or less secure, if you are not a tech guru or a special agent?

Our plain language gives the opportunities and may cause the problems as well.

I see 2 dimensions in information security:

1) information has many variants of understanding (including text viruses) and therefore in this way some variant can be hidden;

2) information has one variant of understanding that makes it secure in proper implementation.

If so, technology (computers, firewalls, cryptography, etc.) is a second question. The first one is human made content and its understanding.

Imagine – everyone can have competitive knowledge in information security and therefore can save big money and managerial efforts that only big businesses and governments usually can afford.

What kind of problems you can see here?

Text viruses and tacit knowledge in managing

Thanks to Prof. Daniel C. Renson my article about text viruses was republished in his "Future-Based Consultancy & Solutions Business Magazine". Excuse my being late with this my post, Daniel.

Why not think further(?):

What are the reasons and reasons of reasons which make text viruses possible? Or what a real value of "tacit knowledge" for practical needs? Maybe Knowledge Management people can answer?
