the-anti-terrorist-hotline-report-me-right-away

I was wandering around aimlessly at a store with 10 bags of spring fertlizer for my yard talking on one of my 5 cellular devices trying to explain to expain to a clerk that I go by my middle name, not my first name, thinking about how suspicious it was that my credit card was actually accepted when it occurred to me that if I lived in Manchester, I would surely have been reported to the Anti-Terrorist Hotline whose motto is "“You don’t have to be sure. If you suspect it, report it.”

It will probably be a little quiet around here for the rest of the week as it's the Thanksgiving holiday here in the US. I'll still be checking my e-mail via the blackberry, of course :). Thanks to all who have made this a great year for WiKID.

It has occurred to me that you could develop an interesting incentive program for an information security team, assuming that you believe a couple of data points (or can come up with your own) and your primary concern is a data breach. In my opinion, security people are all too often incented only to maintain security - not to optimize the investment in security. Interests need to be aligned.
