RSA 2014 and the Need for Intelligence-Driven Security
Due to a crazier than usual travel schedule, I wasn’t able to spend as much time at the recent RSA 2014 security conference as I have in years past. But what I did see and hear there provided a lot to consider in the weeks since—enough to fundamentally alter some beliefs I’ve long held concerning the value and potential for success of traditional security technologies.

Well-publicized disasters aren’t the only problem. While distressing, breaches like Target’s massive, “scammed-for-the-holidays” exposure of millions of customers’ credit card data are simply large scale examples of the inevitable result of inadequate security practices running head-on into traps set by clever, rapacious online criminals.
