The fun "Security is Like..." Item

So, aren't you sick of "security is like insurance", "security is like other IT investments", "security is like police work", etc? Here is one that will make you laugh - and think - at the same time: "Security is Like Dentistry"

Why? Read the post, but here are some highlights:

"* It’s more painful than the providers ever tell you.
* If you make decisions based only on financial Return On Investment you’ll really screw things up
* No matter how many times you strap someone to a chair, shine a light in their face, and poke them with sharp objects until they bleed you can’t make them any smarter."
