Monthly Blog Round-Up - May 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. This is what is driving an idiotic campaign of such "news" as "hackers increase hacking", "compliance is hard" or "awareness of virtualization grows."

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

  1. First time this month, my logging polls took #1 spot!  Specifically, a controversial Windows Log Collection Poll (which is a poll #7) sits highest among the Top5 posts (closely behind are poll #6 about logs that people actually look at as well as poll #5 about logging challenges). Poll #8 analysis is coming up tomorrow, BTW...
  2. As expected, the post called "Reverse Compliance or "Logs as Proof of Incompetence?"" tops the charts as well. It is about, "reverse compliance", which is a motivation to purposefully avoid technologies that have a chance of telling you that you are NOT in compliance.
  3. My quick post on data leak 'prevention' ("In Passing on DLP") is popular as well. Indeed, DLP is a very interesting segment of security market and there is plenty of innovation happening there.
  4. ISO17799/27002 might not be hot in the US, but discussing why it is not IS indeed hot. WTH? Well, "Why Is ISO2700x Hot in UK, but Not in US?" is in Top5.
  5. Again, people googling for "open source SIEM" have pushed this post (this tiny blurb) to top5. This ancient post from 2 years ago (!) years ago explains why an open source SIEM will NOT emerge soon, if ever.

See you in June!
