How-much-to-spend-on-data-breach-protection

In a previous post, I discussed how much to spend on information security based on Gordon & Loeb's book Managing Cybersecurity Resources: A Cost-Benefit Analysis. The crux: spend no more than 37% of your expected loss.

In the past, I have blogged about how much to budget for info sec, how information security creates value for a company, and other posts designed to help info sec personnel make their case. Well, now I have decided that that is all bunk compared to the advice I am about to give. The new tactic: Bribery.

I was duly impressed with the recent ComputerWorld article about how Microsoft fends off 100,000 attacks per month. That is a lot of attacks! The article doesn't mention what Microsoft has spent on security, but my guess is: More than your company's revenues. So what is a poor company to do? Like wine, it is easy find a good bottle of $30 wine, the challenge is finding a good bottle of $8 wine (and were talking magnum). Luckily, thanks to open source software and the many tools built into Linux, even the stingiest of companies can have good security.

People ask me what I do on a blog, like they expect that I tell people about my bowel movements or something. I tell them that it gives me an outlet to proselytize about two-factor authentication, post things that don't belong on a corporate marketing site and throw up half-baked thoughts without the pressure of writing a full-blown white paper. This post is goes under the last category.
