Instead of surmise, Vigilize!!!
To surmise means to “infer from incomplete evidence.”
Often, in an effort to be polite or not offend, we will assume a person’s identity without having all of the required evidence to prove that identity. This is how we fail in pretext calling attacks, phishing attacks, drive-by attacks, and other social engineering attacks. Instead of surmising, we must always follow procedure. This is the only way to be vigilant!!!

The purpose of Vigilize is to respond to ISO’s complaints that users never read ISO’s “ongoing security awareness training reminders.” Our tweets are designed to be copied into the subject line of your awareness reminder, with the language on these pages put into the body. The goal is that the user will have to read the subject line to know to delete the message, and if they understand the subject line the reminder is communicated. If not, they will go into the message and read the reminder.
Feel free to use Vigilize in your own Security Awareness Program. Let us know if you have any ideas, suggested tweets, or ways to improve this FREE service.
