SC Magazine has reminded me today of a new report on the top current security risks, jointly published by SANS, TippingPoint, who provided the attack data, and Qualys, who provided vulnerability data. With impressive modesty and finely-tuned understatement, Alan Paller of SANS describes it as the "best risk report ever".
Well, with added analysis and educational material from the Internet Storm Center and various SANS Faculty members, it has to be worth a close look. And, in fact, it makes several points worth noting:
If you’re a sysadmin and these items do come as a surprise to you, I’d suggest you hotsurf it over to the report straightaway. If not, you’re still likely to find it interesting and useful.
