Security is not a game of blame

17 Oct 2012

Security cannot be made perfect by any vendor or any end user organisation or any consultancy (Name and shame bad security vendors, not customers, says Simplexo CTO).

Suggesting you blame the vendor is patently ridiculous: if my team configure my firewall improperly, and we get hacked, who is culpable? My team, the vendor, or the reseller we bought it from?

Best practice isn’t perfect, but a blanket “blame the vendors” approach isn’t either.
