When patching isn’t enough

Security Engineers are in high demand and with the recent vulnerability found by Dan Kaminsky it is clear why there are just not enough of them out there. We can all patch our systems and keep them up to date with the latest hot fix or security update but the bigger issue is that patches only come out after a vulnerability or issue is found. How do you prepare for the unpublished vulnerabilities and unknown attacks? The answer is to build your environment with security in mind from the ground up, not as an after thought.

There are too many people who feel that security is an add-on or a nice to have so they don’t design it in to their environment. If more people would start with security in mind they would find that they had less risk and fewer incidents.
