In Pictures: The hardest part about security is...
Tripwire photographed CSO Managing Editor Bill Brenner and others with a whiteboard shaped like a talk bubble, where they answered the question: What is the hardest part of security? Here are the answers.
"Admitting that there's a lot you don't know, no matter how long you've been around."
"Communicate! Communicate! Communicate!"
"Getting people to understand."
"Proving business ROI to those that NEED to know it."
"Too many vendors!"
"Getting management to understand the value of a funded team, without having a breach to smack them in the face with."
"The fine line between business requirements and security requirements."
"Having to 86 your friends & family."
"Keeping ahead of the attackers."
"Communicating complex ideas to people who want simple answers."
"Still believing it isn't completely a lost cause. It is."
