Forwarded from: "Huggins, Michael" <mhhugginsat_private> Interesting that all "Security Expert" believe that just because one is placed in a position of authority, or selected for responsibility that one must think and behave as they do. My concern is not where the individual cut his teeth but, what will that individual bring to the table. When I hear the banter that is generated by, "security experts" regarding the lack of concern of AOL, or MS or even the repetitive US Government Receives Failing Grade In Information Security or labeling federal international statutes irrelevant cause they don't see it the way you do. I see you whipping them but, I do not see you offering up your 100,000 plus consultant job to fix the problem. My 25 Years of experience has shown me that money doesn't solve issues people do. As security experts we should be providing assistance and recommendations to those desiring to better our environment. More productivity is wasted in whining than in any other arena. There are a multitude of government and private solutions that we could better serve then lambasting the individuals and corporations that we all know (truly) are trying to better the environment we operate in. I recommend each of us to take a look at the NIST draft documents, Participate in the Human Firewall evaluation, Contact SANS (SCORE) and other multiple (free no cost but, your effort) solutions looking to improve security.

Actually at the time that he earned his degree the University of Phoenix didn't offer an online masters program. Nor is it strictly online anyway, you still have to attend classes. all of which is beside the point. What bothers me is that his big experience that qualifies him for the job is working for Microsoft. Yep, that's a bastion of computer security. -WTB - ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org To unsubscribe email majordomoat_private with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY of the mail.
