We blame Rafal Los for this week’s podcast. He was looking for someone to host a discussion on which is easier to learn, the business side of the business or the security side of the business. And he had a cast of characters he wanted discuss it with. Being a well know sucker for these sort of conversations, Martin volunteered to moderate and help move the conversation along. Except what started as a single discussion may mutate into an ongoing conversation. No, none us are so passionate about what we do that we’d give up sleep in order to do it, are we?
Joking aside, this is a good discussion of how we view the disconnect between the security within a corporation and the business needs of a corporation. As with many of these conversations, we all agree it’s a problem, but we don’t come to a concrete conclusion about how we can bridge the gap. As long as we get more people to think about it though, that’s enough for now. Look for the discussion under the hashtag #SecBiz on twitter.
