Delusion about #cybersecurity growing, says #Cisco report

Good, though short, write up.  In particular note Cisco’s five security principles state that security must:

  • support the business;
  • work with existing architecture and be usable;
  • be transparent and informative;
  • enable visibility and appropriate action;
  • be viewed as a people problem.

IMO the most important take-aways are 1) resilience needs to be at least as important as system hardening, and 2) it’s a people problem, from the Board all the way down to the individual end-users.  As I’ve said before, often now the human gets hacked (ie, spear phishing) before the computer system does.
