The Future Of Infosec
Kelly McNeill writes "Because software is potentially infinitely foul-able it can be said that it is also infinitely insecure. Though cracks in the system are sometimes obvious and thus easily patched, others are only exposed after introducing an element into the security equation that a software developer hadn't anticipated. It's this reason why Infosec (an acronym for information systems security) will continue to be an ever-growing technological field of work. Daniel R. Miessler submitted the following editorial to osOpinion/osViews which explores the intricacies of this relatively new facet of our computer-centric lifestyle and how its changing society."
