In my first post, I discussed the short-comings of ROI as an analysis tool for information security projects because it doesn't include a cost of capital. Using a cap rate will increase the accuracy of your analysis, but how do you come up with a good cap rate?

Website updates

As you have seen no doubt, we've updated the website.   While it has a new look and feel, most of the effort has gone on behind the scenes.  We've upgraded plone and added some new features.  We've added forums for both the Community and Enterprise versions.  We will close the sourceforge.net forums soon.

It's a long standing joke that no matter where you move, your alumni association can find you. That may change after OU's experience with their data breaches as chronicled here. Of course, they use your Social Security Number to track you down.
