Excellent article

by stress junkie In reply to DOWNLOAD: Don't fall prey ...

The article does a great job of summarizing important security considerations. I especially liked the first point about failing to enforce security policies. Not only was this listed as a problem but some analysis as to the cause and potential resolution was included. The fifth point about relying too much on technical skills is something that I've noticed since I was in college. What I mean is that I noticed that some people just don't have a gut understanding of computer systems. They can learn a lot from books but applying book knowledge to field work requires an insight of computer systems that many people do not possess. I believe that this is the point of the fifth entry on the list in the article.

This is the second article this week of which I can find nothing to criticise. Is something afoot at TR? Please keep up the good work.

I agree, just read it. Very good article.

I gave it a 4.0 rating. Very good article (and reminder of what we slack off of sometimes).

Good job.

link is broken

by hlipson In reply to DOWNLOAD: Don't fall prey ...

Tried to access this document several times over several days. Get a message that the file cannot be downloaded from because the site is "unavailable or not found".
This has been reported twice through the normal "broken link" function.

Took 2 tries to download

by Jack-M In reply to DOWNLOAD: Don't fall prey ...

I found it to be an excellent article, particularly the section about a new hire gaining access to security info.(It happened to me).
It did however take me 2 tries to view or download it. I had to close the page, click on the link in my email and then I was able to addess the article.
