Don't buy your way out of trouble

The problem with most security companies is they are very product driven - you name your security problem, and they can sell you a product to fix it. Whilst it's always tempting to think that you can fix a problem by buying something from a catalogue, the reality is often very different.

Don’t do it Bill. All this will achieve is more hacking

In an interview last month for the BBC, Bill Gates once again stressed how seriously Microsoft is now taking security. He spoke proudly, for example, of the 100 million downloads of Service Pack 2 for Windows XP. "Users don't achieve full potential," he said, "if they're having to worry about something like security."

Don’t prevent communications – monitor them

Personal computers and access to the Internet are becoming ubiquitous in both the commercial and public sector environments; even the UK government has committed to have all government services online by the end of 2005. So why are some organizations trying to prevent the use of the very communications technologies that this pervasiveness brings to our desktops, with all the advantages of speed and cost-saving that they offer?

Corporations spend millions on single sign-on, yet don’t achieve their security goals

Corporations spend millions on single sign-on, yet don’t achieve their security goals

Single sign-on (SSO) has gained great popularity, but due to confusion in the marketplace, decision makers in many organizations don’t realize that SSO alone doesn’t adequately address their security requirements, nor does it address issues of compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley, the European Privacy Directives, HIPAA and other regulations. Though implementing SSO can be part of a good security infrastructure, it is only one aspect. Companies that don’t understand this can spend millions without accomplishing their goals.

Don’t Blame the Pigeons

Don’t Blame the Pigeons

It’s the 15th century, and wireless communications are flourishing. The Cardinal, Sir Dickcheney, sensing imminent invasion from the enemy, has instructed his trusted servant Walker (for centuries known only as “W”) to deliver a message to a military outpost on the remote frontiers of the kingdom, 500 miles away. “Prepare to attack.” reads the message. W’s problem: he has to get it there in 24 hours. His only option: wireless. He runs up to the tower where the master pigeon trainer, Rummy, awaits. They exchange a secret password and W hands Rummy the message. Rummy affixes the message to one of the prize pigeons and off it flies.
