FireMon survey shows 65% of security professionals surveyed think they would get grounded by Mum for untidy firewall rules

LONDON, UK:  A survey of 300 IT security professionals carried out by security management vendor FireMon at last month’s Infosecurity Europe has concluded that 65% believe that they would be grounded in some capacity for the messy state of their firewall rules. Of those, over half, or one-third of the total surveyed, said that if their firewall rules were a teenager’s bedroom, Mum would be so angry, she would ground them for life; and just 35% were confident Mum wouldn’t be angry at all.

Modern nation-states have armies in order to protect themselves against foreign danger. Those are supposed to perform essentially the same task as our immune system which protects our health against foreign bodies. However, in certain situations, the army turns against its own nation, overthrows its constitutional government, and sets up a brutal dictatorship over the people. Something similar occurs when the body’s own immune system attacks its healthy tissue, resulting in considerable damage to one’s health and wellbeing. That is lupus, a disease caused by a combination of an inherited predisposition to it and an environmental trigger (e.g., infections, sunlight, or medication.) This is what happened in Libya in 1969 when the army, led by then captain Qaddafi and helped by the United States, overthrew the constitutional government of King Idris. Libya’s resultant political malaise was thus brought about by a combination of an inherited predisposition to political lupus (Middle Eastern-style military takeovers) and an environmental trigger (America’s crucial assistance to Qaddafi’s coup.) What followed was the gradual decline and fall of Libya over a forty-two-year period of hellish existence for many Libyans.

LONDON, UK: Consumer security and privacy comparison and advice website, Comparitech.com, is calling for Virtual Private Network (VPN) providers to resist touting themselves as the “fastest” because, in essence, there is no such thing and these claims can be misleading for consumers. It says continuing to advertise with such ambiguity will erode consumer trust over time in the private VPN market. However, with no governing body to help regulate VPN advertising, some self-regulation would do the industry good.
