The 14 Absolute Truths of Security

  • Keith Palmgren
  • Wednesday, July 20th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

Keith Palmgren has identified fourteen absolute truths of security - things that remain true regardless of circumstance, network topology, organizational type, or any other variable. Recognizing these fourteen absolute truths and how they affect a security program can lead to the success of that program. Failing to recognize these truths will spell almost certain doom. Here we will take a non-technical look at each of the fourteen absolute truths in turn, examine what they mean to the security manager, what they mean to the security posture, and how understanding them will lead to a successful security program.
