Marines...  

First off, thank you for joining this community.  I started this group thinking a few friends might join, and lo and behold, we have over 1,000 members.  Ooh freaking rah!

Now, as a Marine and member of this community, I am asking a question about what people feel are their personal responsbilities with regards to protecting their workplaces from hackers.  For this group it's an appropriate question - our mission was security.  But does this continue as we leave active duty?  If it does, do we feel that we are part of the "security apparatus" that must protect our firms from cyber evil-doers?

The survey I am running is at www.thecyberinterview.com, and if you decide to complete all the information, you have a very good chance to win a Microsoft Surface 3.

Note that I, Christian Anschuetz, am running this survey. This is not a bogus "win an iPad" scam.

Read my recent blog on the WSJ site at http://bit.ly/1LLXm6b to get the background on the premise of the survey.

Thank you Marines, and as always, Semper Fi.

Should organizations focus on managing risk or ensuring compliance? Network World Editor in Chief put the question to me and another CIO, and we both landed on the side of risk.

Read below to see why. Opposing points of view welcome

Can organizations better secure themselves by spending more on their people and less on technology?  I write about these thoughts on the WSJ's blog.  Read it, and then go to thecyberinterview.com to take a survey and share what you feel are the individual's responsibilities in helping to secure their firms.
Guest columnist Christian Anschuetz, CIO and security practitioner, begins a three-part series on the importance of the human factor in cybersecurity. This first installment discusses why firms today are so vulnerable to security breaches

I have tried many things. Failed at most. All those that didn't fail can be attributed to the teams that I have had the honor and privilege of leading.
