Monthly Blog Round-Up – April 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. My PCI DSS hearing coverage in US Congress takes the #1 spot, hand down. Also see (if you can stand it…) , live Twitter coverage here under #pcihearing hashtag.
  2. Of course, “Five Reasons to Dislike PCI DSS – And Why They Are WRONG!” is hot. Also check out the longer paper on the same subject “PCI Shrugged”, published in CSO Magazine.
  3. This month Verizon breach reports was released and my coverage of it takes the #3 spot: “Breach Report 2009 Day." Again, kudos to the team that made it real!
  4. My highlight of Dave’s paper (“MUST Read: ”Who is Minding the Legal Risk around PCI?” by David Navetta“) takes the spot in Top 5 this month.
  5. Only then comes Conficker / Confickr, but not the post you’d think :-) It is my April 1st post “100% Protection from Confickr Revealed!
  6. RSA impressions crawled from the back, namely RSA 2009 Impressions, Part I or “PCI DSS is NOT a Pill Against ‘Stupid’”. All other RSA impressions.

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