Interesting article describing a talk given by "Peter Tippett-- who is vice president of risk intelligence for Verizon Business, chief scientist at ICSA Labs, and the inventor of the program that became Norton AntiVirus -- said that about one third of today's security practices are based on outmoded or outdated concepts that don't apply to today's computing environments."
Tippet uses several analogies concerning outdate vuln research and disclosure and the discarding of hackable technologies. On the surface this sounds good but I'm curious to hear the opinion of some of the security professionals in Memestreams.
Is he entirely off base? Does he make some valid points? Are his analogies far fetched?
I'd love to hear what you think.
Seeking your Opinon, Are 1/3 of security practices worthless?
