June 2012 Archives

The future of security is that it shouldn't have a future; at least, not as its own dedicated profession. Rather, security is merely an attribute of operations or code, which is then reflected through appropriate risk management and governance oversight observations and functions. That we still have dedicated "security" functions belies the simple truth that creating separation ends up causing as many problems as it solves (if not more).

This is not a new line of thinking for me. Nearly 3 years ago I asked whether or not a security department was needed. At the time, I was working as a technical director of security for a SMB tech firm, and as the first dedicated security resource, I had concluded that building a team wasn't going to be fruitful. Rather, it made sense to jump right past the "dedicated security team" phase and go right to the desired end-state.


Just a quick note - several of us are haphazardly getting together in a social capacity next week Tuesday! No reservations required. This is just an opportunity to get out and unwind for a night. :)


When: Tuesday, June 12, 2012 - 7pm (+/- come when you can)

Where: Jimmy's Tavern in Herndon, VA

Tuesdays are also trivia night at Jimmy's, so if you want a distraction, then you can engage in that, too. :)

Hope to see y'all there!
