Security Resiliency

Computer security is in the headlines yet again. Last week it was the bash “Shellshock” vulnerability, before that it was the Home Depot credit card breach, and now the news is all about the security breach at JP Morgan. [ed.: And since Dan wrote this post, we’re knee deep in news about the Dairy Queen data breach and the Kmart data breach.] It seems as if IT staffs are briefing senior management on how they are handling the vulnerability of the week.

Gambling website Paddy Power took four years to tell 650,000 customers their data had been stolen

Yesterday, popular gambling website Paddy Power found itself admitting that it had suffered a serious data breach – the kind of position that no company ever wants to find itself in.

Not that you would know if you visited their website, of course. Because there’s no mention of the issue on the front page that their customers visit.

Data Breach Costs are Real, Not Unicorns

Recently ran across an interesting commentary by Heidi Shey, a Forrester analyst, entitled Pet The Unicorns And Think Of Protecting Customer Data As A Corporate Social Responsibility. Her main point is that relying on data breach cost numbers to justify security investments is “pretty useless.” She writes:
