According to today's WSJ, 6 big US banks and BITS will announce security standards for their vendors. This action shouldn't come as a surprise, since the banks are essentially following in the footsteps of VISA and Mastercard and their CISP/PCI standards that attempt to secure the credit card industry - especially since the banks own VISA and Mastercard.

Brand Damage versus Corporate Competence

Yesterday, Tim Erlin had an interesting and very thought provoking post about breach and brand damage.. Tim rightly takes offense at the idea of the infinite "brand damage" often used to sell information security products. With as little as infosec geeks know about marketing, it's probably best to avoid that phrase altogether. A "brand" is a nebulous idea at best and security probably does not matter at all in most brands. I think it is also hard to try to tie stock performance to brand value. There a lots of great stocks that sell commodity goods. If Exxon/Mobil had a security breach when oil was at $30/barrel, how would you measure the impact of the breach as oil goes to $60?
