Security Culture

See also: Security | Cypherpunk

A culture where the people know their rights and, more importantly, assert them. Those who belong to a security culture also know what behaviour compromises security and they are quick to educate others who are not. Often, many partake in insecure behaviour out of ignorance, forgetfulness, laziness, or personal weakness. This security consciousness becomes a culture when the group as a whole makes security violations socially and morally unacceptable in the group.
