• Interesting quote on human psyche that relates to infosec

    24 Jul 2012

    I just saw the following quote from publisher Malcolm Forbes that underscores the very essence of the problems we see in information security, business and life in general:

    “Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are.”

    Indeed, so many people want to control or break down (they’re one in the same) others because their own lives are out of control. They simply don’t believe in themselves. Like how exercise and good nutrition translate to healthy living, the problems we face are solved by simple means. It’s a matter of choice.
