IT Security Strategies

Thursday, August 3rd, 2006

I was reading this is one of the many trade-mags I get at work. Most people probably won't find this funny, but anyone in the IT business should. This is from page 82 of the July 20, 2006 issue of Network Computing:

Top 11 worst IT security strategies
11. Surround the data center with rattlesnakes and vipers
10. Set up a firewall. There's gotta be firewood around somewhere
9. Equip all laptops with explosives that detonate if users don't check in every five minutes
8. Cover the server room floor with oil and marbles
7. Open source all customers' Social Security numbers; that way they can't be stolen
6. Hire Hells Angels to guard the server room
5. Try reverse psychology: If you offer thieves the data, they won't want it
4. DDoS the network every day so attackers can't access your files
3. Have all medical records entered in Pig Latin
2. Preemptively file a class-action lawsuit against your company for future data breaches
1. Write critical data on your body and never shower

My favorites are #7 and #3.

hahah, that's awesome. My favorite is still the clip where Gates and some other dude are showing off the plug-and-play functionality of 98 and they get a blue screen when they plug in a scanner. Bill's all like "uh oh".
