comment Sensitive information was placed in a publicly accessible folder. Who is responsible and how to proceed?
Very well said. Incident Response should focus on discovering the root cause and making sure it doesn't happen again. Assigning blame only muddies the process. I've seen too many cases where people are afraid of participating in IR for fear of fingers and pointing.

comment Firewall Considerations with PGP Universal
@YoavAner: Not really. They give you a list of the ports, and what they're used for, but there is no engineering level guidance on what risks are associated with the data presented through each.

comment How do you destroy an old hard drive?
@RoryAlsop: I'll do that sometimes to, but you do need to be careful with the platters. Most desktop drives are metal, and will bend. Some, and almost if not all laptops drives, are glass. They will make a godawful mess in your lab. Let me tell you. :-/

comment How does hacking work?
@Pacerier: The problem isn't usually technical, as demonstrated by the fact that some languages do already provide validation subroutines. The problem is that developers aren't using them (or not using them correctly), which turns it into a education and/or development/test/business process problem.

@Pacerier Validating the input requires that a programmer do so. It should be noted that "Input Validation" is the root cause of half of the OWASP Top 10
