Following the Wh1t3 Rabbit - Practical Enterprise Security

Enterprise Security organizations often find themselves caught between the ever-changing needs of the agile business, and the ever-present, ever-evolving threats to that business. At the same time – all too often we security professionals get caught up in “shiny object syndrome” which leads us to spend poorly, allocate resources unwisely, and generally de-couple from the organization we’re chartered to defend. Knowing how to defend begins with knowing what you’ll be defending, why it is worth defending, and who you’ll be defending from… and therein lies the trick. This blog takes the issue of enterprise security head-on, challenging outdated thinking and bringing a pragmatic, business-aligned, beyond the tools perspective … so follow the Wh1t3 Rabbit and remember that tools alone don’t solve problems, strategic thinkers are the key.

"Solution Architecture" ...a critical service or just sales talk?

Working with our customers day in and day out, I tend to get a sense for what the language barrier is between someone in the vendor role against someone who is in the buyer role.  You probably won't be shocked that what may sound like simple language can get quickly confusing, misunderstood, and outright tuned out by either side of the aisle.  The point of this post is to attempt to dispel the misunderstanding behind what a solution architecture (at least in our context) is.  If you're not interested, or don't work with vendors much, stop reading now, and know I won't be offended.
