Change is hard for everyone. Many appreciate and depend on the routine of their daily cycle. They may complain about the monotony, but they do nothing to change it. And then there are security folks. Monotony is not in our vernacular. I suspect most would give their eyeteeth for some monotony.
Security folks face new challenges every day, most of which remain out of our control. We can’t control what new innovative attack owned our data center. We can’t control the rainmaker that clicks on the wrong thing two or three times a month. We have to accept our place in the system and clean up the mess. For the 2 years we stay in each job, anyway.
What we can control is how we react to everyone else’s fear. And nothing causes fear like new, cool technologies. Take Apple’s new Touch ID fingerprint reader. The mainstream technology product reviewers love it. It makes stronger authentication transparent to the consumer. We’ve always said that until security becomes transparent, it’ll never really be accepted. So this is a good thing, right?
