QOTD - If I was a CSO – By a “Hacker”


Don't buy expensive boxes just because you think, or have been told, they will make you secure. We’ll either by-pass that box, or own the box. Either way, you’ve prospectively wasted your money and the end result from my perspective is the same. I own you. As has been said before, you could use that money for a corporate Ferrari for team moral instead, better use of the money. Your security is rarely better from these product. Save the money to hire people with skills instead of getting magic boxes that do little or nothing. We find it amusing that in 2011 we can own 90%+ of systems that we approach first time, yet these companies all have packet filtering routers, FWs, IDS/IPS and WAFs. Isn’t that so obvious.
