Security Strategy
I agree with Richard Bejtlich on the shifting views of collecting, storing and protecting data.  The traditional way of handling information is changing, but the policies/laws/and practices are lagging behind. On a side note, I remember talks with Richard as far back as 1999.  We where both in the AFCERT at the time developing tactics, techniques, and procedures for the myriad of emerging threats. I do remember a conversation in which we would see a time where business and security would merge to create an economic strategy that essentially would dictate the success or failure of a company.  I guess we have reached and passed that point on the cyber highway!
