Quick Observations

Just some quick observations here, maybe I’ll have time to write about them in more depth in the future.


  1. Information Security does not flow from Policy. It flows from Policy Implementation.
  2. You can have secure information without policy, and you can have policy but no secure information. They are not mutually inclusive.
  3. Always remember to use hashes in your Perl scripts to cache data that you look-up (DNS, whois, LDAP, whatever). It will make everything faster, trust me on this.
