An interesting aside leading up to this story: Last Thursday, I attended a dinner at Jeanty At Jack's, a San Francisco bistro, hosted by Outcast PR to promote security vendor and client Fortify Software. (I got dinner, all they got was this lousy link.)
The guest of honor was Howard Schmidt. About 7:15 p.m., the 20 of us or so in the room are startled by a scream and smash -- there's just been an accident outside on the street. Howard rushes out to help (he has a background in law enforcement). That's the sort of person you want to hire as a CSO.
