Re: 2015 Nomination: Cyber-Murder
Precisely why services like Citrix Netscaler and other similar ADCs like Fortinet and Barracuda feel free to monger enough scare that we would buy one of their 'safety nets'. TBH though, Netscaler and F5 do offer some degree of immunity against DDOS and SSL attacks. (more here:bit.ly/1uNXuNY)

Re: 2015 Nomination: Cyber-Murder
I suspect this will be more along the lines of some group conducting a DDoS against emergency services.

Oh... wait...  that already kinda happened...

2015 Nomination: Cyber-Murder
I'm just waiting for the headline that includes "Cyber Murder". With the ability to hack insulin pumps and pacemakers, and the growth of IoT and Wearables, it's only a matter of when, not if.

Don't forget the non-executive board of directors too.  They have that whole fiduciary duty thing going on... :-)

Re: Some big headlines
Another anecdote to further drive home your point, Stratustician, I've presented at more board meetings on behalf of CISO's than the rest of my security career combined.  And that's as a non-CISO, outside consultant....

Re: Some big headlines
I agree for the fact that system have flaws and breaches can happen, however it the damage is disastrous and impacting to whole network that means C suite, security experts and staff did not do their jobs. They needed to have layered security measures so impact of a security breach would be minimized.

As long as they can declare that in their resumes. The same goes for CISO, I bet nobody is looking to hire Sony Picture's CISO

Re: Some big headlines
It is good idea to hold CEO responsible, they are the one who are holding final budget commitment decision and most not doing it in favor of secure environment.

Lots of security experts have been talking about security flaws in different systems and architecture. They have not been heard simply because nobody wanted to hear them. It involves real dedication to security and commitment to the budgets. Most companies thought they can get away with simple measures instead of making strategic decisions and real investment in security. I would not be surprised if it gets worse.

Re: Some big headlines
To an extent, just because a CISO or other C level was around during a time that a breach occurred, doesn't mean they are at fault personally nor does it make them less qualified. Realistically stuff happens, no matter how skilled a team is. It's about how the response is dealt with that personally, I think is the bigger issue. Take responsibility and initiative and I think most folks would agree it's a sign of good leadership. Ignore the situation and redirect blame, not so good.
