Monthly Blog Round-Up – December 2008

As we all know, 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. These monthly round-ups is an attempt to remind people of useful content from the past month! If you are “too busy to read the blogs” (!), at least read these.

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

  1. Truly shockingly, AGAINx3 :-) this month, the "Top 11 Reasons to Secure and Protect Your Logs" came up as on the Top list.  My Top 11 lists on logging live on! Is log security finally of interest to people?
  2. Admittedly, making fun of other’s security predictions is easier than predicting correctly. In any case, “On Retarded Year-end Security Predictions” got the #2 spot this month.
  3. People, there is NO open source SIEM that you can use in place of “market-leaning” (aka “expensive”) products! Despite that “On Open Source in SIEM and Log Management” is also again on the top list, to much of my amazement.
  4. My list of PCI DSS-related blogs is in on the top list: “PCI DSS Blogs
  5. For whatever bizarre reason, the anti-virus saga is back to the top, where it stayed for many months.

See you in January. Also see my annual “Top Posts” (2007, 2008)
