The Security You Need (Before You Know You Need It)

Fall is finally here! Last weekend, the temperature dropped, so I cruised to the store with my windows down and my stereo playing Jack Johnson. I parked to run inside and get the few quick items. For a moment, I debated whether or not to roll up my windows. What's the harm?

Spoiler alert: I rolled them up and locked the car. Why? I'm in the business of security and threat mitigation. I knew I would be tempting fate.

But what does my trip to the store have to do with a security breach? If I left my car open and it was stolen, I would have felt like a bonehead (and my wife may echo the sentiment). I would be dealing with police, the insurance company and car dealers all day instead of enjoying the sunshine. Just like a stolen car, a network security breach can happen any day, any time – but it can also be prevented. So why aren't you doing the simplest combination of things to protect yourself?
