Thinking like a hacker reduces security breaches

  • Tech Page One; By Michael O'Dwyer (Posted by bob on Apr 2, 2014 5:30 PM EDT)

Automated testing has its place in detecting IT security weaknesses but it cannot replace manual testing. “Amazingly, even a decade’s old vulnerability like SQL injection still surprises most clients,” adds Jensen. “I think most of the surprises come from the exploitation of seemingly innocuous functionality that results in a devastating vulnerability.”

Organizations with innovative IT departments value collaboration

In the open source community, we know the value of collaboration. It’s at the core of everything we do. Some of us are lucky to work for organizations that understand and embrace the power of collaboration. Yet, the silo mentality runs rampant in many organizations where collaboration and internal crowdsourcing is not valued. (Opensource.com readers who are pursuing open source projects on the side, but spend their days working at companies with silos are likely very familiar with this).

If you wanted to assemble the world’s finest fruit basket, you wouldn’t pick all your produce from the same orchard. You would gather the best from multiple sources: Washington apples, oranges from Florida, and pineapples from Hawaii. Applying the same philosophy, many programmers and developers are now combining the best coding from multiple open source Web Application Frameworks (WAF) in order to create their own custom-made websites, content management systems (CMS), and other web-based apps and services. Call it cherry picking at its finest.

You can't have DevOps without open source

You probably think I'm going to talk about all the reasons why you should use open source tooling as the foundation for an effective DevOps culture in your organization, but that's not what this is about. Not to marginalize the complexity of the challenges faced by the team I work with, but I have confidence that the engineers are going to figure the tooling part out. Believe it or not, the daunting part is wrapped in cultural change. I have spent a significant amount of time reading about cultural change, what you need to have an effective DevOps community, how you build high functioning teams, and asking the question, "How do I DevOp?" The ideas I've read have given me a few new things to stick in my tool belt. However, nothing has resonated with me as much as this:
