Dan Geer on Complexity

Dan Geer, the CISO for In-Q-Tel (and former VP of Verdasys) on complexity:
There’s zero doubt that we humans can build a system more complex than we can understand, much less control, to the point of no surprises.
Every time we add another security product to our enterprise mix, we increase the complexity of that mix.
