Quote of the Day: Gene Spafford

"Certainly, anyone following the news and listening to what we’ve been saying here will recognize these trends. All are natural consequences of increased connectivity and increased presence of valued information and resources online, coupled with weak security and largely ineffectual law enforcement."

"If value is present and there is little or no protection, and if there is also little risk of being caught and punished, then there is going to be a steady increase in system abuse."

- Professor Eugene H. Spafford (someone who I have long respected & admired), in a very insightful comment on the CERIAS Blog regarding the 2008 McAfee Virtual Criminology Report.
