Why Everyone Should Learn to Be A Hacker

May 11, 2010 Added by:Robert Siciliano

I know enough about hacking to make all of my software un-usable, mess up my operating system, and crash my PC.

Is it really important to have a structured security budget? (part2)

April 30, 2010 Added by:Dario Forte

Company problems cannot be resolved with software. Another factor that I have noticed in my recent work as security advisor is the divergence between the enthusiasm of providers for the growth in security budgets, as reported in the surveys of recent years, and reality.
