Monthly Blog Round-Up - August 2007

I saw this idea of a monthly blog round-up and I liked it. In general, blogs are a bit "stateless" and a lot of good content gets lost since many people, sadly, only pay attention to what they see today. Yes, attention spans seem to be shrinking even among the security professionals ...

So, my 1st monthly "Security Warrior" blog round-up, top posts and comments by topic.

  1. My blog got featured on a few high-profile programming sites and I got a small "/. effect." The topic that got a boost was anti-virus efficiency. Thus, these posts were the most popular: Answer to My Antivirus Mystery Question and a "Fun" Story, More on Anti-virus and Anti-malware, Let's Play a Fun Game Here ... A Scary Game,
  2. Next, Top 11 Reasons to Collect and Preserve Computer Logs continues to be a "best seller," just as I suspected. Stand by for the third post in the "Top 11" series - "Top Reasons to Secure and Protect Your Logs"
  3. WSJ saga (summarized here) and my post Hello, Mr Darwin! also "topped the charts." The bottom line is still "don't rely on users for security" (but still have a good security awareness program!)
  4. Of course, last month's Security ROI Pile-Up! post is still hot, hot, hot. More attacks are coming (hint, hint: "positive return on security" - bua-ha-ha-ha-haaaaa)!
  5. This month's tip on proxy logs (Anton Security Tip of the Day #12: Proxy Log Fun - Proxy Logs vs Information Leakage) is also on the list.
  6. Finally, A Bit More on Log Management vs SIEM (and Semantics) post which highlights some of the differences between SIEM and log management also made it to the top. More on the topic is here.

See you in September :-)
