Re: The Law of Lightnling
i was in error - when in doubt - do as the CEO of Equifax did in testimony.  Blame ONE, JUST ONE, IT tech for a disaster.  The implications of the mind-boggling DUMB idea are beyond description.

competitive
Security is often misperceived as a cost factor or necessary evil rather than a differentiating factor or competitive advantage Security can provide competitive advantage if properly implemented.

Never strikes twice in the same place, right? Good point. That always depends om the place, if valuable and not protected, why not.

Cost

The Law of Lightnling
Never strikes twice in the same place, right????   Not precisely but it does strike anyway.  For IT staffers, executives et al to BELIEVE that once hit, twice good is insane.  They are asking for more trouble and when they find it ..... well, blame the IT department for that.   Bury the innocent with blame, exonerate the guilty with promotions and bend to shareholder value.  Heaven forbid a soul-searching exam of the issue should take place?  Incredible dumb.
