Situational awareness, simply put, is to know what’s going on around you. Humans are good at filtering out noises, voices, lights, smells, and any sensory combination. However, you have to remain vigilant about your surroundings. Don’t allow your screens to distract you to the point of unawareness.
Preston and I briefly speak with Tony Ayaz, CEO of Gemini, about cybersecurity situational awareness. We discuss what situational awareness is and what it means, or should mean, to you as an individual. Preston and I will actually speak more on this in a future one-on-one podcast.
The U. S. Coast Guard definition of situational awareness:
Situational Awareness is the ability to identify, process,
and comprehend the critical elements of information about
what is happening to the team with regards to the mission.
More simply, it’s knowing what is going on around you.
