Simon Burson

"Secure By Design" considers a practical approach to building security into an organization. Having read and written a whole lot of idealistic papers and standards; I have come to realise most use them as a gravity aided weapon for crushing those with an idea.

This is a case example of an approach that is ensuring those pen test results are pre-determined. An approach that avoids the rolling of eyes when risks are signed off. It is a work in progress and while delivering some benefits, it is certainly open to heckling from the crowd. Of course it could be that the approach is perfect and there is no room for improvement... baited yet?

Simon a.k.a taz, the ever argumentative telco flipping lobbyist for all things that bring down PCI. As the man who once did a SLA for the Internet, I am a creative chap who builds wondrous clouds during the week and destroys lil critters in the weekends.
