Cybersecurity Is Not Just a Technical Problem – Brian Honan – PSW #727

We have spent decades tackling security threats with technology, and we are failing badly. We need to look and learn from other industries and see how they have improved their industry. In particular the airline safety and automobile safety industries have a lot that we can learn from. Things such as breach disclosures, accountability, root cause analysis with openly shared results, focused training, industry norms for checklists, certification of products, and regulations have all improved these industries.
