Where was this individual when they were writing the document. Sitting on the sidelines drinking latte's and protesting our war more than likely. Here's my thoughts, the government had two choices 1. Legislate compliance with federal statutes (what dod and the rest of the government must comply with) for businesses which would have drawn the ire of epic and people like this author or 2. Attempt to utilize value input from real security experts than publish what leaders from IBM MS and others tell them. A true snapshot of what can happen is going to happen this year and when it does I will be laughing all the way to the bank, and people like this author will be eating crow. -=- Date: Wed, 5 Mar 2003 11:24:36 EST From: JohnE37179at_private Subject: Re: [ISN] Lost in cyberspace In a message dated 3/5/03 10:17:37 AM, isnat_private writes: > Yet here we are in 2003, and the cyberterrorism casualty list is > still barren. I guess this is true if you live with your head in a very dark place. Let's see if we can give the writer a clue. Tens of millions of identities compromised on credit bureau and credit card sites. Let's connect the dots. 15 out of the 19 hijackers on September 11th were using multiple identities. This writer tells the same head in the sand story that everything is OK, because I am ignoring the problems. Sounds like the NASA approach to shuttle flight safety.

Hopefully, it is because Mr. Koerner is just misinformed and doesn't understand the differences between threats and vulnerabilities. Brendan fits in with the same people who said that an airliner would not be used as a weapon because it hadn't been done in the past. He would probably also fit in well with those who thought that Japan's naval air power wasn't a threat to America prior to W.W.II because of the logistic problems in extending such a force across the Pacific. The only correct conclusion Mr. Koerner draws is towards the end of his article where he says "Most [of the reports solutions] are meaningless jargon..." The Government has definitely failed to step up and taken the actions necessary to secure our critical information resources.
