Intersting Information Security Bits for June 11th, 2008

June 11, 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.

Link posts: Valuable or just noise….

June 11, 2008

Monday thru Friday, when not on vacation or traveling or such, I post my Interesting Information Security

Watching Static

Bits posts. I have two questions regarding these posts:

1) Are they of value to you or are they just noise?

2) If they are of value, are my comments helpful or would you just as soon just get the links?

I would much appreciate everybody’s feedback. Leave it in the comments.
