Re: IoT at the workplace
Yes agreed. From your perspective what typcially non-work related IoT devices do you think will have the greatest impact in the work environment as they become more integrated? Or do you think it consistent across device platforms?

Re: IoT at the workplace
Yes, the Internet of Things promises to keep things very exciting from a security perspective.

Or as a pen-tester friend of mine likes to describe it, "job security."

Re: 20% ?
Commenter Dr.T asked: "Does this mean that 20% do not know that they are breached?"

No. It means 80 percent of respondents were honest enough to admit they had been breached. The remainder either weren't being completely forthright or feared some sort of blowback.

I don't know any infosec professionals who think their networks are invuinerable. You?

Re: Proactivity vs Reactivity
"The best defense is a good offense"

Exactly. I agree. The only problem is that there is no budget for offense in most cases.

Re: Proactivity vs Reactivity
"cyber fatigue."

I hear you. This is nothing that will be going away anytime soon. Unless we figure out a way to deal with security in more manageable and proactive way such as designing the systems and applications secure in the first place, not leaving security to later stages.

Re: Proactivity vs Reactivity
"moving away from reactive security "

That would be great, I would think it would take more time, most SMEs do not know all these things are all about until they get hit.

20% ?
Does this mean that 20% do not know that they are breached? Most companies have been breached one way of other, it does not have to be via a professional hacker, an employee forwarding an email to their Gmail is a breach.

Re: Proactivity vs Reactivity
Precisely.  Which goes to a related point: The best defense is a good offense.

(Which isn't an endorsement of per se offensive security measures.  Just noting the need for proactivity rather than reactivity.)

Re: Proactivity vs Reactivity
It's true, Joe... infosec professionals are done bouncing around like squirrels in a cage (most of them, anyway). There's simply too much coming at them every single minute. I think this is at least part of what Greg Bell was talking about with his phrase "cyber fatigue."
