• Security talent ≠ security success

    28 Feb 2011

    Here’s one of those great quotes that applies directly to infosec:

    “Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.” -Stephen King

    There are plenty of people who understand security architecture, hacking and related technical issues but few who really get the essence of risk and have taken the necessary steps to make information security work in support of the business.
