Topic: Doin’ the Regulatory Rumba
Regulations are like dust bunnies – there’s always another one lurking around the corner. Some make security better. Some make as much sense as Givenchy on a giraffe. To get to “better,” security practitioners must man up, speak up, and engage with the powers-that-rule make. How else do we get from “are you kidding?” to “why, yes, that’s a good way to foster better security – and world peace.”
Mary Ann Davidson is the chief security officer at Oracle, responsible for Oracle software security assurance.
