An Adversarial View of Security

The information security industry needs to hit rock bottom, says Akamai's Joshua Corman. And then - to truly improve information risk management - it needs to develop a new, adversarial view of the world.

"No one changes until they're sick and tired of being sick and tired," says Corman, director of security intelligence at security vendor Akamai. And in his view, it's time for the security industry to face a grim reality: Threats and adversaries have evolved, but security policies and practices haven't changed much since 2003.
