Into The Breach

Into the Breach answers the question, “What happens when breach is only a symptom?”

Michael Santarcangelo guides a bold – and refreshing — look at addressing the challenges of protecting information – and reveals the real challenge as a human paradox. As Michael explains,

“People have been unintentionally and systematically disconnected from the consequences of their actions for so long, they are no longer held accountable or take responsibility,” explains Michael. “The real key to protecting information is to engage people in the process and support them with the right tools and technology.”

An expert on human ecology, Michael is quick to point out that we do not have a “people problem” and explains why suggesting people are “the weakest link” or other commonly used phrases is nothing more than a copout. By explaining the human paradox, Michael demonstrates how people are actually the heart of the solution. He then sets forth a clear plan that explains how to engage, empower and enable individuals to take back responsibility.
