If you’re part of a security team, you may want to take down that “0 days since incident” sign, and go back to basics. What works for a construction safety crew or even the sales team doesn’t work in InfoSec. It was cute while it lasted, but such attitudes are too simplistic when it comes to digital security. https://www.infosecurity-magazine.com/news/infosec17-security-teams-told-to/
First of all let me apologize for my absence. I’ve been very ill with multiple infections, including pneumonia. That stuff is nothing to mess with, much like information security. I’m finally coming out of the fog; therefore, this round-up will be a bit extended, because there’s some important things I hope you all didn’t miss.
Someone told me this week they don’t understand the cloud. Tried to explain that it’s basically someone you don’t knows computer. Cloud services can present unique infosec challenges. Some folks are working to fix that.
Sorry for the absence as of late. I’ve been very ill with multiple infections to include pneumonia. It’s been a hard, hard month or so. Right about the time I was coming out of the fog, I captured this moment with my sweet Alaskan Husky, Yuki. Enjoy.
If you’re not following Martin Vigo, you may want to. His educational bent on exposing flaws is refreshing and I dig his attitude. He doesn’t act like he knows all, a tendency I’m noting from many in the InfoSec field, calls out his own mistakes, learns from them and moves forward. Good on ya, Martin.
On the heels of that, people at Harvard have some ideas that maybe the government, or your own company, might want to take into consideration in order to digitally improve security.
Last Friday there were simultaneous power outages in New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. The power companies say it wasn’t an attack. But it’s kind of weird and I’m not convinced. In an effort to turn this weekly posting into more of a conversation, what do you think?
As in weeks past, feel free to leave a comment here about any of those articles. Let’s learn from one another. Okay, have pity on the noob and let me learn from you.
Have another great week InfoSec geeks. See you next week.
