Monthly Blog Round-Up – February 2009

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” (eh…cause you spent all your time on twitter? :-)), at least read these.

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

  1. Just as last month, my coverage of Heartland data breach saga took the #1 spot, by a long shot. Specifically, “On Heartland”, “Heartland II”,“Heartland III” and new “On Heartland IV” are the most popular. My first original post is here too (“Compliant + 0wned”) – the second just came up (“PCI DSS and Data Breaches: Perception and Reality”)
  2. Next up, strangely, is my obscurely humorous post on SAQSA (“PCI SAQSA?”) – and to think that many people suggest that ‘humor’ and ‘auditors’ don’t mix …
  3. A post where I link to a rumor of a new processor breach (“New Processor Breach?”) is next. No solid info has since emerged.
  4. Next is my link to SANS SIEM whitepaper (“SANS on SIEM”); it is good reading on SIEM, even if a bit too “EPS-obsessed” to my taste.
  5. And now something weird: two completely unrelated posts tie for the 5th place: an old  “On Doomsaying (Terry Childs case)” and a new “CAG Out!”   Please joke about it at your own leisure :-)

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