At the Edge

An ITSP column and podcast series with Sean Martin, CISSP

Cybercrime is pushing us here.
Vendor marketing is pushing us here.
It's time for some push-back here.

We're selling cybersecurity insincerely, buying it indiscriminately, and deploying it ineffectively.

My goal with this column is to bring transparency to the operational aspects of cybersecurity, breaking down the communications surrounding the methods, services, and technologies that the information security industry offers up for the latest in protecting our businesses and our society.

I'll take select briefings from vendors, exploring where their solutions best fit, how their solutions can be operationalized, and call the industry out when confusing, or otherwise misleading, messaging is put out for the world to see and hear.

We're all sitting here #AtTheEdge and have a huge decision to make: which direction will you take? Will you play it safe, turn back, and move away from the edge? Will you accept the risk, take a leap of faith, and jump over the cliff? Or, will you hedge your bet, and see what happens, and follow the edge to watch what others do?

Or, is there an alternative we're not yet aware of? If so, perhaps we can uncover it here.

At any rate, hopefully this column and the conversations we have here can help with your decision.

-Sean Martin
