• When will security be thought of this way?

    14 Nov 2008

    When out on my lunch break today I drove by the entrance to a manufacturing plant (a Fortune 500 global company) that had a sign that read “Safety is everyone’s responsibility“.

    I understand that protecting electronic bits and bytes isn’t as critical as protecting human bodies but this sign made me think about information security and where it is on the radar of business leaders. The truth is that unless and until management buys into security to the level where they’re putting reminders/mandates on signs out front such as this one we’re simply going through the motions and, effectively, going against the grain.
