The first rule of Information Security

My first rule of Information Security has today been demonstrated to good effect to still hold true. The rule being: “If you don’t check then it hasn’t been done.”

The somewhat related second rule of “people will tell the Security Director what they think he wants to hear” is also proving to still be very current and valid.

The fifth rule of “never trust a network diagram to show a true and full picture” is now promoted up to third place.

The problem for those who feed me incorrect information is that they clearly haven’t yet learnt that I always check the detail.

It’s still only Monday too!

Hi Stuart, You probably won't remember me as I left RX a year ago, but having read through some of your articles it's good to see the same old battles are carrying on! Great blogging! Hope you are well! Mark
