Re: How to get better security people
>A basic security mindset is a combination of paranoia, a talent for >contingency planning, and an understanding of business need. My suggestion was to include a couple of courses in the curriculum. 1. Engineering Ethics How to play fair Right and wrong, dealing with conflicting responsibilities 2. Engineering Paranoia The world doesn't play fair Bad data, safety factors and progressive collapse I'm not sure you can really teach someone the right combination of ethics and paranoia to be successfull. I can teach anyone the technical stuff, or give them a really thick book. But best practices aren't a substitute for understanding the business and sound judgement.
