Back in October, at the ISSE conference at The Hague, Adobe's Jim King said that 98% of office staff did not see the protection of corporate data as their problem, his source being a survey his organisation had carried out. Even given for inaccuracies of various types, that is a scary result. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Source

We need to encourage an increase in secure operations, but what does this mean? It means that staff need to demonstrate that they are acting less insecurely. So, when did you stop acting insecurely? When did you stop kicking your dog? This is an awful question because it is loaded with the assumption that you did once kick your dog, or act insecurely. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

I have been looking at security conferences coming up this year and a key theme is the cloud, which is perhaps no surprise. But I see something in the cloud that worries me: the possibility that the information security profession might finally lose the struggle to have a separate identity from IT. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.

When I started thinking about this article, my colleague and I were sitting at our departure gate at Düsseldorf airport on our way home from a super ISACA conference in the beautiful city of Budapest. We were early to our gate, so were almost the only people in the room. Suddenly, ground staff appeared, shortly followed by several bus-loads of resigned-looking passengers whose plane had, apparently, 'gone technical' on the runway. They were, as a result, packed into the lounge while another plane was found. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Source

Incident response is a key part of the profile of any organisation. For many customers, how problems are handled is an important part of their relationship with that business. For some organisations, how incidents are handled is a core part of their effectiveness. For that reason, key organisations have invested time and money in their incident response capability. This article looks at a dimension to that provision that is often overlooked: the third dimension of 'backstage' provision and support. This oversight could well lead to higher staff turn over and lower efficiency. How can that be avoided? Wendy Goucher explains. I grew up in a household where incident management was the norm. My dad was a construction site agent, and about the first thing that had to be arranged wherever we lived was a phone. It was in the hall, so that it could be heard all over the house and in the garden. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Source
