Things I'm quickly looking at

I've been super busy lately and haven't been able to keep up with my feed reading like I'd like to. Obviously my posting has slowed quiet a bit also. Today I've got a little breathing room so I decided to post links to several articles that I saw that I quickly looked at and found to be of interest or value. If you haven't already done so check them out.


More UA fodder. Good article on DarkReading about how people are the root of the problem and thus why they need training.

Another good DarkReading article. This one is on the value of having a well trained IT staff.

DarkReading is our winner today with 3 straight awards in my picks of the day.

Rebecca Herold is quickly becoming one of my favorite bloggers. Today I discovered that in addition to her Realtime Community site she has another site that is also loaded with great information regarding privacy.

Cutaway jumps in with both feed talking about how Universities need to take care to secure and protect sensitive information.

The Liquid Matrix blog rings in about the woeful state of DHS. Maybe they should call it the Department of pwnedland Security.

Finally I'll leave you with some "lite" reading from the guys at Matasano. They make my head hurt.
