• Supererogation helps infosec

    04 Jan 2011

    I saw a great Word of the Day from Merriam-Webster over the Christmas break: Supererogation

    It means “the act of performing more than is required by duty, obligation, or need”. Said another way it’s going the extra mile above and beyond to make things happen.

    If there’s any one underlying component of being successful in everything you do it’s doing all the other things that need to be done in security (or wherever in your life) after you’ve completed what’s generally expected.
