Recycled Truism

Strange post here presenting what they probably think is vaguely original: The worst truism in information security

“Attackers just need one vulnerability, defenders need to be perfect”

First time I saw something like this? 1984. That’s 34 years ago.
BBC – IRA bombs Brighton Hotel

The IRA has issued a statement claiming it had placed a 100lb bomb in the hotel.

The statement read: “Today we were unlucky, but remember, we only have to be lucky once; you will have to be lucky always. Give Ireland peace and there will be no war.”

I bet that type of statement is older than the hills.

Note – I’m not picking on that post or the author. He has valid points. What I am saying is this: Nothing is new.

Donald does Vladimir

One day I hope someone will be immortalised in Wikipedia for assassinating the complete fucking drool baby that is apparently in charge of that thing called the USA.

Warhol mentioned 15 minutes of fame.

This fame would be forever.

What do Nike say?

Just do it

1Password

It’s on my PC and works okay.
It’s on my work macbook pro and works okay.
It’s on my phone and works okay.
But on my macbook air? Something happened – no idea what – “upgrade”? – it won’t work.

It insists I login to an account at 1Password.com that I do not have. Very very annoying.

So later I’ll copy the app from the pro, install that into the air and then see if that will get it working.

If it does, okay.
If it does not then I’ll go back to LastPass.

What does the NHS need to survive for another 70 years?

Less fucking managers. That’s what.

Article.

I started in the NHS in 1985.
There was a Charge Nurse (think Matron if you want), then a Manager of the hospital wards, then the manager of the hospital, then a Manager of the local Health Service, then a Regional Manager and then the Health Secretary.

The fucking tories and their bastard Trust system happened.

We had managers for managers, secretaries for secretaries and VERY certainly in Learning Disability Services in Leicestershire career managers who would fly in, build a house of cards and then quit just before the collapse.

We had managers like Elaine Moore who were just terrible on an epic scale.

Every management layer sought to insulate it from ANY event by demanding more secretaries, more sub-managers, “team leads” and all manner of other jargon to save themselves and their pension.

Want to save the NHS?

Sack 90% of the fucking management structure.
