Securing Infrastructure

A few months ago, I was invited to contribute a short essay to an eBook published by Mighty Guides on ‘What are the greatest challenges you face in securing your network and applications infrastructure?’

Well, it’s been a while since I was directly involved in securing a major organization’s infrastructure, but I figured the principles haven’t changed much in the last ten years or so… I was a bit taken aback to find that the publication was sponsored by one of ESET’s competitors and that it would only be available at first by registering with that competitor’s web site. Not that I have a problem with the company concerned getting some return on its investment, but Mighty Guides should really have made clear to all the contributors that there might be a problem for people who work for other companies. (Fortunately I’m a freelancer, so there’s no conflict of interest as such, but some people who do what I do are employees.)

However, the section to which I contributed is now available without registration on Slideshare – as is at least one other section – and will eventually be available in full on the Mighty Guides site. If you can’t wait and don’t mind registering in order to get a full copy, you can find it here.
