I always felt there was potential for IT Security to become fashionable, especially with those Die Hard and James Bond connections. Of course the problem is the rather pedestrian types that IT Security attract, who are generally rather conservative or nerdish types. So it’s so refreshing to hear of one our community being described as the “rock star of security outreach”. I’m referring of course to the excellent Ian Cook of FIRST and other fame. I’d certainly endorse that. Though as a long-standing jazz fan, I’m not entirely sure it’s a compliment.
