There are two ways of thinking about computer security:

1. Face the problem head-on, allocate resources, do your best and test your measures.

2. Hide under your desk and hope nobody attacks your systems.

In my experience, most businesses prefer option 2, probably because it is cheaper and offers the illusion of safety.

Google seems to go for option 1. The article below offers an interesting behind-the-scenes account of what Google did during the latest major botnet attack.

It's egret nesting season at Google's Mountain View campus, which means Shorebird Way has been blocked off not to disturb the baby birds. I love it!
