Risk first, security second
This to me is the key point of what John said: that we need to think risk first, and security second. It makes sense, but it's definitely a shift in mindset. I wonder if that's because the field is just now emerging from its old identity of being for the very techiest of the technologists.

Re: Risk first, security second
Know the THREAT - Assess the RISK - Implement the SECURITY - Plan for CONTINUITY or if you will Observe, Orient, Decide, Act.

Every part of a Security Risk assessment should have a purpose. However, without a clear understanding of the threat, risk cannot be accurately assessed. 

Resources are finite and only by use of effective decision making processes, based on a sound knowledge and understanding of the threat, can appropriate and resilient security measures and continuity plans be be put into place.

risk management
How are we still having this debate. Some basics....First deal with what you know, e.g. new threats appear every day, what risk do those threats pose to the organisation, how are we dealing with those threats. Second, do we understand whats truly business critical, what are the threats/risks and how are we dealing with those. Third, do we have ownership, because without it you dont have responsibility or accountability, so not even at first base. Fourth, who's tying all these strands together. Fifth, is all this being reported. Six, is it being actively managed, i.e. on agendas, at all levels, all the time. Seven, is this framework actually working in practice. Eight, do we have a clear current picture of all assets. Nine, do we have control of change management. Ten, pray.
