Cyber Security is extremely fashionable - but what is essential for survival in today's world, and what is snake oil ?

Pragmatic real world security
  • Basic essentials - locking the front door
  • Angles of attack - is there a window wide open around the back ?
  • Defence in depth - locked cabinets and safes within the premises
  • Surveillance - did the CCTV catch anything ?
  • Detection - how do we know if we've been burgled ?
  • So what do we do now ? plans for what to do if it happens
You can come away from some cyber security discussions feeling you have had a totally over the top lecture on how to withstand an assault by special forces when all you really needed to know was some advice on chain link fence, filler shutter doors, and CCTV.
