Down the Rabbithole - Episode 05 - Bryan Stiekes Says InfoSecurity is Fundamentally Broken


  This week I host Bryan Stiekes, a distinguished technologist with HP ...and not a security guy by trade.  Bryan has been a part of IT for a very long and distinguished career, with a background in networking and architecture.  Bryan's premise is that Information Security is at its core fundamentelly broken ...and I can't say I disagree.  We discuss the different aspects of what's been wrong with modern information security, and whether this is a good time to be in the 'business' of IT.

  This is a fascinating conversation for anyone who's feeling lost in IT Security ...and looking for some light at the end of the dark tunnel we've managed to wander into.
