Intersting Information Security Bits for June 11th, 2008

Since at least a couple people find these posts helpful and/or interesting (thanks Zach and Kees), they will continue.

Dean De Beer posts about the increasing complexity of scams our users are seeing. One wonders how long until it will be virtually impossible for the average user to determine if an email is legitimate or not.

Andy Willingham has penned a missive that discusses something that every information security professional has to come to terms with at one time or another. He calls it audit driven programs.

Our last entry today comes from Alex Hutton. He posits that under certain circumstances checklists are not for dummies, but they sure are dumb. As he says, checklists have their place, but are completely inadequate and often misleading when used for some purposes.

Have a great day.
