Peter Gabriel Web Server Stolen

Peter Gabriel's website fell victim to data center theft

Reported on Slashdot today is the news that Peter Gabriel’s web server has been solen from the data center where it was being hosted. I have my own thoughts on a possible motive; mostly related to some of the dreadful noise he’s produced over the past 30 years.

Physical security has been a previous topic of this blog (see entry from 10 Dec 2007).

1. Don’t make assumptions about third party security controls. Check them for yourself.

2. Make sure your incident response plans include actions to take in the event of critical equipment being stolen.
