Full Disclosure Applies to Internal Security Too


If you’ve been keeping up with the news, you’ve probably noticed a few recent reports about companies that may have been a little less than candid about security issues. For example, we recently learned that Uber experienced a breach in 2016. As we’ve also learned from subsequent press reports, the company may have paid the attacker to remain silent about that breach instead of acknowledging it publicly and openly. Along similar lines, we all probably remember — and are still dealing with the consequences of — the Equifax breach, which exposed the credit histories of millions of individuals.

Surviving the Security 'Skills Desert'


If you’ve ever spent time in a desert, it may seem inconceivable to you that creatures actually can live there. The fact that animals not only survive, but also thrive in those conditions seems counterintuitive. In fact, a number of animals do so — in many cases, they are aided by an array of specialized adaptations that allow them to leverage the environment to their advantage. For example, the thorny dragon lizard literally absorbs water through its skin, and the fennec fox has oversized ears that it uses as natural “radiators.”
