Congratulations to Visa and Mastercard, the latest companies to not notify consumers in a prompt and clear manner, thus inspiring a shrug and a sigh from consumers.

It’s always nice to see clear reminders that the way to get people…Read More How to mess up your breach disclosure
Photographers should check out Flash applets on some technical aspects of photography at Stanford. The apps help you understand things like “Variables that Affect Exposure” (the aperture/time/ISO tradeoffs) as well as how lenses work, create depth of field, or how a telephoto lens bends the light.

At BSides San Francisco, I met David Sparks, whose blog post on 25 security professionals admit their mistakes I commented on here.
