Federal Security Progress? Print E-mail
Written by Paul Winkeler   
Wednesday, 25 April 2007

It has been 4 years since I last looked at the grades the Federal Government assigned itself for its security efforts. Since then the original 2003 report has disappeared but a PDF with the 2007 grades at least references all grades since 2003 or so. The news is not much better unfortunately with especially depressing results for the Department of Defense and Homeland Security. How these grades are computed is still a black box so maybe, just maybe, these departments hold themselves to a higher standard? Once can only hope!

Network World ran a story about some of the smoke and mirrors application vendors are using to make it appear they're contributing something useful to the virtualization trend. As you can read in this article, no applications are truly virtualization aware (yet).

Movie Plot Contest Print E-mail

One of the most respected names in the Information Security Field, Bruce Schneier of CounterPane fame has long complained how our elected officials seem unable to take a systematic, rational approach to developing counter measures to realistic threats. After all, this would require performing a thorough risk assessment and impact study which would highlight government incompetence. So instead, high-flying scenarios are conjured up and impressive measures are proposed. (Read: this is a great way to generate free publicity and create some memorable campaign rhetoric.)

But wouldn't you know it? Just like the old joke about the perfect way to eliminate the mafia is to let the government run the crime syndicate, the scenarios typically cooked up are farfetched but by no means as grand as they could be.
Enter Bruce Schneier's contest. Enter your movie plot threat given his guidelines and become eligible to win a copy of Bruce's book "Beyond Fear" which is an excellent read anyway. And should you win and should your movie plot be made into a movie, please remember where you read about it!
