Technology is a wonderful tool; however a majority of network compromises occur as a result of some human failure. This paper presents the vulnerabilities of network security caused by human intervention. The major weakness of security in depth is network compromise brought about by a failure of human interaction with the technology not just the lack of critical defense software and hardware. Much effort is invested by network administrators to over come the results of failure to follow established security policies. The combination of security in depth technologies and policy enforcement will be presented as a technique to harden corporate network defenses.
