Re: I'll stick with stage 2
I totally agree with you on this. Most companies that have suffered a breach usually transfer the agression to the CSO and his team, which I personnally think is a coward way of coveing their asses. Security is a joint work in process, one that is easier to maintain when it is a top - down approach. I'm all for Ricky on this, if the CSO is going to be fired because of a breach, then the CEO should as well be fired.

Thinking about this, it leads to another discussion of when will mangement start considering CSOs for the CEO position. Like seriously.. why cant CSOs be CEOs?

Re: I'll stick with stage 2
Tom, I love your idea of having the punishment fit the crime. In POTUS proposed new data breach regulations, executives of companies that have experienced a data breach should be made to spend the average amount of time it takes for a data breach victim to fill out webforms and wait in a call center queue.. Pefect!

I'll stick with stage 2
I plan on remaining angry at Anthem. The fact that Anthem's incompetence at security costs me time just isn't right. Instead of a fine or legal action, Anthem exectutives should be sentenced to call each of the credit reporting services' support lines, and then to fill out web forms, on behalf of each affected customer. That would amonut to life in voice jail, but it would be an appropriate sentence.

Everything You Need to Know About DNS Attacks
It's important to understand DNS, potential attacks against it, and the tools and techniques required to defend DNS infrastructure. This report answers all the questions you were afraid to ask. Domain Name Service (DNS) is a critical part of any organization's digital infrastructure, but it's also one of the least understood. DNS is designed to be invisible to business professionals, IT stakeholders, and many security professionals, but DNS's threat surface is large and widely targeted. Attackers are causing a great deal of damage with an array of attacks such as denial of service, DNS cache poisoning, DNS hijackin, DNS tunneling, and DNS dangling. They are using DNS infrastructure to take control of inbound and outbound communications and preventing users from accessing the applications they are looking for. To stop attacks on DNS, security teams need to shore up the organization's security hygiene around DNS infrastructure, implement controls such as DNSSEC, and monitor DNS traffic
