Network Security Driving Me NutsI woke one morning and found this alert in my email:

ON WORLD Press Freedom Day, Saturday May 3, Panama’s TVN channel 2 received another “cyber-attack” on its website (tvn-2.com). The network said that the attacks have gone on continuously for five days leading up to Sunday’s election and a TVN broadcaster has been threatened via Twitter. read http://www.newsroompanama.com/panama/7645-press-freedom-day-marred-by-cyber-attack-on-tvn.html” 

My opinion is this: There needs to be a point when “we” as security sales professionals provide a disclaimer that clearly explains:

Disclaimer: This security device may get you 80% secure at best with hard work, and commitment; This device will need constant attention, managing, and there’s a good possibility if you forget, or ignore something on it your network and all its data will be compromised! 

I’m sure it might say something in twenty paragraphs of the EULA.

There are many factors on why I say this,

1. Complexity

2. Learning curve

3. Commitment to product

4. Lack of firewall and security knowledge

5. Management

6. False sense of security after the sale.
