Why you should hack yourself

The best way to test whether your organisation is safe from hack attacks is to hack yourself, according to SC Magazine – the world's largest dedicated IT security publication.

It seems radical, but with recent activity from hacker group LulzSec (and all the other smaller-scale attacks which haven’t made the news) SC Mag says we should be testing our own online security.

“Test your people and systems – go find some malware (be careful: use a sandbox, and make sure you have permission!) – and send it in to your organisation. See if your defences are actually working.”
