Monthly Blog Round-Up - March 2008

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.

So, here is my next monthly "Security Warrior" blog round-up of top 5 popular posts and topics.

  1. This month my logging polls are super-hot: specifically Logging Poll #6 "Which Logs Do You LOOK At?" Analysis leads the Top5. Do people look at logs? Which ones? Check out the poll analysis.
  2. Somewhat predictably, PCI compliance is still all the rage. So, just like last month, MUST-DO Logging for PCI? post was propelled to a place in my Top5 popular posts list. It discusses the fact that there is no "easy list" of what you MUST do to comply.
  3. Also predictably, next up are again my Top11 logging lists:  Top 11 Reasons to Collect and Preserve Computer Logs and  Top 11 Reasons to Look at Your Logs (the third list, Top 11 Reasons to Secure and Protect Your Logs, was not quite that popular - I long argued that, sadly, few people care about log security yet). A new one was also added to the list: Top 11 Reasons to Analyze Your Logs.
  4. Surprisingly, my little impression from a CSO Summit (where I gave a keynote) made it to Top5: Data Theft "Russian-Style" Is your data stolen?  Bad! Is it sold for $5 by the street vendors in Moscow? Super-bad!
  5. Also surprisingly, one of my comments on a recent breach ("On Hannaford Brothers Breach and PCI") is in Top5. Newer comments are here.

See you in April!
