What Is Not a Security Issue?
SecurityThinkTank. com is a leading provider of consulting, training and education services for the global information security industry. Its security consulting practice offers a unique opportunity to provide security expertise to a variety of clients from all segments of the industry.
A security consultant must be able to analyze and interpret data and to draw solid conclusions. While that is not an easy task, it is critical. To do this, we need people who have a broad base of experience to understand the unique ways that the Internet and the computer network is changing.
Many people see security as a technical issue. It has always been this way. Technical issues are the bread and butter of security. People can be trained to identify these issues for problems to be fixed, or to create technical solutions to address them. But technical issues are only one part of the puzzle. Much more often than not, the technical issues are also associated with a moral, political or social issue, which needs to be addressed.
Therefore, the technical issues need to be seen as a side issue of bigger issues. A big, but usually invisible issue.
Security is often characterized as a technical problem, but in reality it is really much more than this. What we do as a security sector is protect the public from the possibility that the security of the Internet and computer network will be compromised as a result of our choices as Internet users.
If this is all there is to it, then the security profession will have a long and distinguished history as an important professional. But what we need to do is to be very clear about what is not a security issue for the profession. And, most importantly, for the public.
In that light, we must stop asking security professionals to think only technical issues. Their primary job is to address larger issues.
As we have seen in our discussion of what is and isn’t a security issue, when we fail to put greater emphasis on that larger issue than on the technical issues, we will fail to address the underlying causes of these larger issues.
In other words, instead of asking the Security professional to focus on identifying the issues, the Security professional should instead focus on understanding why these issues are occurring in the first place.
I again remember a day at my office : hydration, hiring and hacking
We are all familiar with the story of the old boy of IT, Steve Souders. The first time we saw him was during a lecture he gave at his company. “And now,” he said, “I have to tell you another story. ” It was the summer of 1999 and he was explaining a “preview” for a company called Cybertrust. The preview involved what would happen if a hacker broke into an organisation and if it was able to put the breach down to a software flaw. “If it is a software bug,” Steve said, “we have to change the code so that it doesn’t exist. ” A few years later, during a lecture at his firm, Steve was still talking about this incident. It was the summer of 2003. “I don’t know what’s going on today,” he said, “but I know what happened in the past. ” After he had finished, I walked over to him. His face was pale, his eyes were staring. His lower lip was shaking uncontrollably. “And now,” he said, “I have to tell you another story. ” It was the spring of 2004. That summer, the company had been using the latest version of the antivirus software. It was called Avast! and its creators had designed it with the express purpose of protecting organisations from online attacks. With the software installed it was easy to scan and to detect the presence of viruses. But what they could not know, which many organisations didn’t know at the time, was that Avast’s creators had no idea how to patch the software or install patches. The company had installed all new version of the software and in three or four months Avast would have stopped scanning. It never should have had this kind of vulnerability. A few months ago, Steve told me this story when we ran into each other for the first time that March. “I remember the exact date,” he said, “I remember it perfectly. Today, I have to tell you the other story.
Re-fitting the engine during flight.
Article Title: Re-fitting the engine during flight | Computer Security.
The article titled ‘Engine re-fit during flight’ was published in 2017 at the time of the engine re-fit by ISRO at Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota, India.
In this article, I want to discuss the need for an engine re-fit during flight and, if there is a flaw in the current configuration which requires an engine re-fit, the potential for an exploit. I also describe the engine I have tested and the new configuration to test the potential.
This is the first of two articles on the topic of re-fitting the engine during flight.
I was requested to take a look at the engine on the ISS during a ‘pre-flight check’ in December 2014.
The only time I ever saw ISS equipment was during the time I worked at the STS-133 Mission Control Center and during liftoff of the Soyuz capsule on February 11th, 2016 during the Space Station Integration Test Flight (ISTFT).
I had come away from that event with the impression that the Soyuz was an exception to the rule as the ISS is pretty much a laboratory environment.
The next ‘pre-flight check’ I was asked to take look at the ISS hardware during the EVA.
I started off the journey by carrying out a test of the thermal and electrical systems using a model of an ISS component called a Service Module (SM).
However, as part of the ‘pre-flight’ tests, ISRO decided to check the engines in the engines themselves to check for vibration and noise. I have been told that ISRO did not intend to check the engines in the spacecraft itself.
The engine that came back from the engine fit and the one that needed an engine re-fit were both SMs of the Service Module for the ISS. Both SMs had the engines installed on the front and aft edges of the SM, as shown in Figure 1.

Helping employees bring their Home Work Experience into the Office.
Article Title: Helping employees bring their Home Work Experience into the Office | Computer Security.
In this series we’re going to talk about how to bring the home work experience into the office. We’re going to talk about how to bring the home work experience of a project into the office and how to bring that experience down to the level of an employee who is working on the project. In the first article in this series we talked about how to use the home work experience to not only create an identity in your company, but also create new capabilities that enable your employees to get the job done on a broader, more powerful platform. In this series we’re going to talk about how to make your company and all of its people more agile by using the home work experience to unlock new capabilities and make your team more productive and more efficient.
In this issue of Security+ we’re going to talk about how to create a new identity for your company. This time around we’re going to use it to not only unlock new capabilities for your employees, but we’re going to use it to create new capabilities for your team.
What we’re going to do is create a new identifier that we call the “Home Work Experience Identity”. The Home Work Experience Identity is going to allow me to add new capabilities to my employees and I would love to hear ideas on how you think this could be used to unlock new capabilities for your company.
First we’re going to create a new system called “Home Work Experience Identity”. The Home Work Experience Identity is going to allow me to add new capabilities to my employees and to unlock new capabilities for my team members.
This is going to be a self service portal where you can add people to your system and then view their Home Work Experience Identity and edit it. With the Home Work Experience Identity I’ll be able to add new companies, new projects, new people and new business.
When I create a new company with the Home Work Experience Identity I will be able to add a new Company Identity and I will be able to add new people from my company or people from the world. When I am creating a new project, I will be able to add a new project.
