Good advice from Mullins, as usual

by Flash00 In reply to Keep your security effort ...

This is good advice, in general. We tend to assume that the need for security is self-evident, but we have to promote our efforts a little to keep the subject in the foreground or management takes security for granted -- at least until a cracker breaks into and wreaks havoc on our network. Then it's crying time.

We have to be careful about promoting our security accomplishments though lest we inadvertently give something away that a cracker can use. It's a fine line that's difficult to see. Unfortunately this article doesn't shed much light on it. Perhaps there is no way to illuminate the subject. It's an art not a science.
