2) Put them in sleeper cells.
3) Set up weapons/equipment/etc. without their knowledge.
4) Run "activation" drills often so they don't know if it's the real thing or not. This will condition them. It can also test detection methods.
5) Activate them for the "real thing", but do not give details until right before they are to execute the attack. Emails, text messages, phone calls, coded written instructions left with equipment or plans can be used.
6) Those caught before receiving last minute instructions provide useless intelligence and can be used as decoys or sacrificial losses to tie up law enforcement and misdirect them. Consider using decoys (unknown to themselves) with false information to delay and confuse law enforcement.
I don't know why people don't like this. Conservatives can feel all warm and fuzzy about the free market and liberals can feel all warm and fuzzy about encouraging people to make the most environmentally friendly choices. Warm fuzzies all around.
Think about it. It's basically a coin flip that company A buying company B will result in any benefit to the shareholders of A. If shareholders were truly wise, they'd tell management to just give them the cash they would have spent on acquiring a company. They'd make out better in the long run.
Relying on some test to see if people know not to open an email from "Hot Sex Machine" with a "cool app you must see now" is lazy IT administration. I know that small businesses often cannot afford an IT person, but to rely on some test is bad management. Are they going to retest people every year to make sure they're up on the latest scams or social engineering techniques? Will they pay people to take the time to educate themselves on this stuff?
I'm sorry, but this would be like requiring employees to provide their own safety equipment, develop their own lock out/tag out procedures, and maintain their own confined space entry plans. It'd be like saying, "We don't have to implement safety guards because we test whether people know not to stick their fingers in moving machinery." Such things are the responsibility of management. If management provides a tool (a computer, a machine, a car) for an employee to use, it is the responsibility of management to maintain it and provide the proper training on it. Otherwise, it's just pushing the cost off to the employee.
I understand that as a small business, this may be a challenge for them. But if they rely on some test, they're going to end up with a hodge-podge of protection with some minimal baseline. This is not good management.
Yes, but we have to think of the children. Can you imagine some innocent child distilling all that Red Bull and then snorting the coke? If we save but one child, it would be worth banning Red Bull.....
I can see it now:
