Are infosec pros complacent?

I had a very interesting conversation with a colleague recently. He had a disturbing take on the state of information security and, particularly, practitioners (of which he is one). He took the position that security professionals who have been around a while are becoming – no, making themselves – dinosaurs. Having been in this field well over 20 years myself, I, of course, found that a disturbing notion. You know what happened to the dinosaurs. Not a pretty thought.
