I’ve talked about compliance before however @carnal0wnage recently tweeted a great link to a video explaining the difference between compliance and security. I think this video makes it much more clear than any write-up could possibly do. And no … it isn’t for those of us in the echo chamber but rather something you might want to bring up when explaining it to a layman (e.g., that CIO that just cut your budget to only meet the relevant compliance standard).
(Note: As part of a campaign to bring forward some of our older posts that we feel still benefit the community, we’ve added this article to our Best Of category that will periodically get tweeted out. Please mention it to me on Twitter or contact us if there are any other posts you feel we should include in this category. This post was previously categorized under Training. [email protected]grecs)
But first here is my Venn diagram where I try to depict the intricate relationship between compliance and security.
Any questions? … Oh, and here’s that video…
Mmmm? I think that CIO would probably go for the Venn diagram more than the video … but I still like the video better. See ya!
