Advice for Information Security Professionals

Always keep in mind that business before technology. Technology offers elegant solutions for some problems, but increases difficulties for others. Never lose the sight of target: protection. Be heard and not seen. Be more skillful than you let on; know more than you say. Speak to users, not at them. Know that is education can never be completed.
