When all else fails

The failing economy has obviously effected every market to a certain extent. The security market (which is the one I am in so it is the one I care most about) has been hit pretty hard. I did not believe that people could do without security but I was wrong. This comes down to lack of legislation forcing people to take responsibility for data breaches.

An interesting article over at Network World is a letter to the next President asking him to take a stand. The author makes a great statement about how there will be no change until there are real negative consequences for not being secure. CTO’s and CISO’s will continue to do the bare minimum until there is a reason for them to change their ways.
