Money + Attitude = Security . . . NOT!!

by puchatek2 In reply to Don't cut corners with se ...

I find it amusing that some people think that simply throwing cash at the problem will make it go away. How secure is your system if you spend a quarter of a million dollars on security tools etc., yet allow your CIO to use automated logon "because that's the way he likes it"? Or exclude upper management from password-change policies because they don't like to deal with "the hassle of having to choose a new password" every 90 days?

Effective security also means, among other things,
maintaining the proper attitude toward security.

TR needs security insight!!!

by jmottl In reply to Don't cut corners with se ...

Hello TR members,
We need to form a focus group that will review/critique security related content we're currently developing and hoping you're interested in participating. We'll be sending you a security package -- various documents and downloads that we're creating to help members use in their jobs, and looking for feedback on whether you believe they have value, suggestions for improvement and what specific security topics we should target first.
If you can shoot back an email at judy.mottl@cnet.com by tomorrow (Thursday) and let me know if you're interested in helping that'd be great.
I hope to hear from you,
Sincerely
Judy Mottl
