Awareness before caring
03/02/15 Category: Thoughts
I once heard the phrase you have to be aware before you can care. While it was in an entirely different context, it reads true for security.
I believe part of the problem we have with the lack of security is that executive management and security teams dob't really have the level of awareness needed to truly grasp the current state of affairs both within their own environment.
The other phrase that comes to mind is ignorance is bliss. However, corporate ignorance does not translate to bliss for their customers and ultimately as we see again and again it affects the bottom line during a massive public breach.
