Do people really need to be so secret about security?
I’ve been working with classified stuff, luckily so long ago so I’ve forgotten everything of importance. But one thing I remember is that very much about security, survivability and threats is non-classified. But why then are people so secretive about security?
When visiting seminars and conferences I notice that people in a ridiculous way talks around security probably thinking they are very clever. Tell it like it is! That you are doing security analysis and why; it is most likely not classified so be open with that, but the results are probably classified so don’t discuss them.
Instead the public (and press) go and do a lot of assumptions about security assessment that really isn’t fruitful and make the society un educated in regards to security.
