Our Mission: To provide practical, clear and concise advice to that great generation on how best to keep themselves safe in a world without walls.

Once upon a time a gentleman named Bruce Schneier uttered a phrase that’s often repeated in the information security space: “Security is a process, not a product.”

Much like many quotes shuffling around the Internet, you’ll find the complete and unedited quote far more informative and useful than the shortened version.

“Security is a process, not a product. Products provide some protection, but the only way to effectively do business in an insecure world is to put processes in place that recognize the inherent insecurity in the products. The trick is to reduce your risk of exposure regardless of the products or patches.
