A Condensed Guide to the Security Fails of 2009
December 23, 2009 Leave a comment
The past several weeks I have been posting a series I called the Security Fails of 2009. It was designed to be a look at stories that illustrated the challenges faced in IT security as well as some of the broader issues shaping the industry.
For your convenience, here is a recap with links:
12/10 – The Marine One Breach – illustrates the threats created by unauthorized applications.
12/14 – The Strange Case of the Missing Cyber Czar – a look at the seven months that had passed since the announcement of the position in May. Obviously the position has been subsequently filled. Coincidence?
12/16 – Conficker Becomes a Media Darling.
12/21 – The Heartland Payment Systems Breach – Lessons learned form the largest breach of customer data to-date.
