I caught up with my friend Kellman Meghu at BSides Detroit as the conference was coming to a close and we finally got to sit down and have a fun conversation about chaos, and what sorts of things enterprises can realistically do to increase security today. We both work for vendors so we talked about "shiny blinky boxes", when things fail, and the notion of resiliency. Fun conversation ensues ... with a random sprinkling of security buzzwords.
Kellman's famous quote is from this episode is "I can hand you this tool, and that doesn't suddenly make you any more secure than if you hand me a hammer I suddenly become a carpenter." Wise words to live by folks, wise words indeed. Spend a few minutes with Kellman and I, and see why he's one of my favorite people to interview.
