Re: Practical thoughts on cyber security.. Kudos!!
@[email protected]: there's probably not a single source of blame for the cyber security challenges we're facing, although I'd agree that lapses and negligence as well as the point that @DMRomano makes about companies simply not understanding the value of cybersecurity all play into it.

Can you tell us more about what your company is doing to overcome administrative lapsess and negligence within its own security practices? Any examples of how you've addressed these issues would be helpful to all of us who are concerned about security in our own oganizaitons.

Re: Practical thoughts on cyber security.. Kudos!!
@Zaious: complacency is indeed the biggest mistake a company (or government organization) can make when it comes to cyber security. I'm not sure what scares me more: the risk of personal data being compromised, or the risk of compromise to the SCADA systems that support our electric grid, water supply and natural gas piplelines. The former costs lots and lots of money if breached; the latter could cost lives.
