What Cyber Security can learn from Copenhagen’s cycling strategy
People naturally do what is easy and fast, and not necessarily what is “right”! If you want to change behaviour you need to tear down all the barriers that make it difficult to do the “right thing”. Ask someone in Copenhagen why they ride a bike and they will tell you it’s because it’s the easiest and quickest way to get around, nothing to do with saving the planet. From the 1980’s onwards Copenhagen made a real effort to encourage safe cycling. They prioritised traffic lights for bicycles over the car, built over 1,000km of cycle lanes and cycle bridges and closed streets to cars. As a result they are now reaping the benefits of this strategy in terms of better fitness and lower pollution levels, lower health care costs and a better quality of life.
If you want to make it easy for your network users to do the “right” thing and access the internet responsibly, one of the quickest and easiest technologies to implement is a Cloud based DNS security solution. For a School, College University, shop or workplace your Wi- FI Guest Access presents you with one of your biggest vulnerabilities. You need a way to protect your students or customers, even when you have no control of their devices. Cloud based DNS security solutions will do this for you instantly. Point your DNS to a global security cloud, with formatted or customised security policies, and you can enforce web access policies, block malicious websites and phishing links, and see all your web traffic and locations.
The other benefit of DNS Cloud Security is the cost! Unlike many solutions you won’t pay for each user. By using different licensing models, such as per location or per Access Point, overall licensing costs can be significantly reduced.
