Interesting Information Security Bits for 10/15/2008

Good afternoon everybody! I hope your day is going well.
Here are today’s Interesting Information Security Bits from around the web.

  1. Symantec launches online PC tech support services | News – Security – CNET News
    Give remote access to your system to Symantec and for $39.99 or $69.99 and they will solve your PC problems. I’ll leave you to come to your own conclusions here.
  2. Security policy being bypassed by employees, survey finds
    This article just reinforces that you have to make the security controls you put in place manageable and easy to use. You also need to make sure you are enabling your users to act securely. You, as a security professional, are doing your business a disservice if you force the users to make choices that place the business at risk because they can’t get their jobs done efficiently due to onerous or poorly designed security controls.
  3. Bush signs PRO-IP antipiracy law
    The PRO-IP Act has been signed into law. There is a bit of a difference of opinion as to if this is a good thing or not.

That’s it for today. Have fun!
