Stay Classy, San Diego!

Stay Classy, San Diego!

What was popular in March? Breaches and advanced security and March Madness, OH MY! St. Paddy’s and spring break dominated most of the twitter discussions this month, although at the end we sure had a topic to discuss. More on that later.

Here are the five most popular posts from last month:

  1. RSA Conference 2012, Are You Ready? I hope you made it out to RSA Conference this year. The buzz and excitement around the event of 20,000+ attendees was electric!
  2. Top Five PCI DSS Mistakes that Lead to a Breach. I wrote this blog post after speaking to several insiders about the challenges small companies face when it comes to complying with PCI DSS. Many of them look at the various SAQs and panic! So while I won’t endorse not complying with the standard, what are the top five things that cause a compromise? Read this to find out!
  3. Top 3-5 Things to Remove from PCI DSS. It’s FEEDBACK time! Folks, take this seriously, it won’t be back for another two and a half years. Submit your feedback! But also, maybe think about things that could be removed from PCI DSS.
  4. Passwords and the People Security Problem. This one sure did spark some discussion! Everything from “passwords are dead!!” to “users/society forces our hand!” accompanied this post as people discussed via Twitter. What do you think?
  5. Boss, I Think Someone Stole our Customer Data. It’s so humbling when a blog post that is nearly five years old makes it into the top five. This post is timeless, and is based on a HBR case study from 2007. Give it a read!

Thanks for stopping by!
