The Cyber Money Train

October 15, 2012 Added by:Joel Harding

Anything to do with Cyber equates to a lot of money. One estimate for CY 2012 was $13 Billion being budgeted for cybersecurity just for the US government. One study I read predicted we would need to increase spending by up to 1,800 percent. That, ladies and gentlemen, is a big chunk of change...

On Infosec Friends

August 24, 2012 Added by:Javvad Malik

They are the guys who you look out for and they look out for you. If you see a bug in their code, you’ll sort it out for them. When they call you up at 3am for help with a security strategy presentation, you stay up with them all night working on it. When you are stuck on something, you’ll turn to them for help....

Your CISSP is Worthless - So Now What?

August 23, 2012 Added by:Dave Shackleford

OK, so it’s not really worthless. So what do I propose? I say scrap the whole thing. Start over. Build a cert and program that tests fundamental skills and means something to employers who really need things done. Offer existing cert holders one year and a free test to get the new one. Otherwise, they’re out...

Scot Terban ISC2 Board Candidacy

August 23, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

Ok, so after a flurry of tweets about the candidacy of others, my name got thrown in there like so much pasta being chucked at a wall. Well, it stuck in my case and I decided to run. So, if you think that I can get in there and stir up some trouble, and maybe make some changes then VOTE FOR ME in this petition...

Infosec: Be All You Can Be

August 22, 2012 Added by:Randall Frietzsche

Companies Focus on Growth But Lag Behind Threats

June 20, 2012 Added by:Bob Radvanovsky

Industries that are regulated or that have to adhere to a standard feel that if they simply follow the requirements that they are secured. This is a misnomer, as adherence to a regulation, governance or compliance standard is a good start, but it does not necessarily mean that an organization is "secure"...

Lies, Damn Lies, and Infosec

June 13, 2012 Added by:Dave Shackleford

I often hear infosec folks opine that things are futile, we’re not making a lot of progress, we’re not “winning” (whatever that means). I’ve struggled with this for a long time. I’m an optimist and I want badly to believe that we can succeed at beating back what for all appearances seems to be an unending tide...

LinkedIn Failed to Meet Standards or Better Standards are Needed

June 10, 2012 Added by:Jeffrey Carr

LinkedIn doesn't have a CSO or CISO, which for a publicly traded company communicates that security is not a priority. Considering they still don't know how this breach occurred and the minimal attention payed to password security, I can't help but wonder how secure the credit card information is...

Facebook "Like" Button = Privacy Violation + Security Risk

May 21, 2012 Added by:Matthijs R. Koot

If you walk into a store, would you appreciate it if the owner phoned a random stranger to tell them? Probably not. Yet every time I visit a website that has a Facebook `Like'-button, my browser discloses that visit to Facebook, despite the fact that I do not have a Facebook profile...
