Possible quote of the year?

Hi All

 

Is this the quote of the year:?

 

"The sloppy practices, misplaced priorities, and poor leadership up and down the supply chain are not unique to SolarWinds. The SolarWinds hack was the result of our collective approach to cyber security, which is in dire need of an upgrade.

 

Peter Drucker is often credited with saying culture eats strategy for breakfast. The SolarWinds hack is a manifestation of a crisis in the way we treat our sensitive data. The culture of make-believe has to give way to a culture of stopgaps, failsafes and vigilance as relentless as the bad actors that target us."

 

Regards

I would rather focus on solving world hunger then trying to heard cats.

Thanks for that. It reminded me to add a slide to my CISSP seminar deck
pointing out that, for all that it uses asymmetric encryption, and XML, and a
whole raft of complicated protocols, SAML is just a fancier form of Kerberos.

I've heard cats.
