Why We Should Stop Talking About Software ‘Security,’ And Start Talking About Software ‘Safety’

Three decades of debate about the ‘security’ of software hasn’t done much to make it more secure. Maybe it’s time for a change in nomenclature.

Let’s face it: we routinely underestimate the effect that language has on our perception of the world. This makes sense – we all like to think of ourselves as logical beings, swayed by indisputable facts and direct observations of the world, not words, images and fancy-pants rhetoric.

New Google Resource for Hacked Sites

I’ve been attending the Search Marketing Expo in San Jose this week keeping up with all the latest and greatest in internet marketing. Monday’s keynote was a presentation from Google’s Matt Cutts and Bing’s Duane Forrester in which they ran through examples of all the things they’ve seen through their “excellent adventures” in working for search engines (it was a Bill and Ted themed presentation).

Windows Is Critical Infrastructure? You Betcha!

Final Two Winners of Our #NoSOUP Photo Contest

With RSA all rounded up the only thing left for us is to announce the final two winners of our #NoSOUP photo contest and get their prizes out to them.

Our photo booth with Larry Thomas of Seinfeld was a great success with over 1,000 photos taken with him over the course of the week! Nearly 100 of you decided to participate in our #NoSOUP contest through either Twitter, Facebook or emailing us your photos (you can see the full list of email entries on our official #NoSOUP contest page.)

The First Two Winners in Our #NoSOUP Photo Contest

As you may have noticed our team has been out in San Francisco this week enjoying and working the RSA Conference. Larry Thomas from Seinfeld, “the S.O.U.P. Nazi” has made a big splash and folks have been lining up by the hundreds to get their photos taken with him. We thought this might be the case which is why we built our contest around Larry and made it as simple as sharing your photo with him.

#NoSoup For You Photo Contest

You’ve probably already heard that our RSA Booth #1342 will be featuring a photo op with Larry Thomas from Seinfeld. Fans of the show will undoubtedly remember his immensely popular character the Soup Nazi as he was one of the few, perhaps only guest character that stole the show from it’s mainstays.

But why did we commission him to join us? Simple. We’re out to eliminate S.O.U.P., no not the chicken noodle sort but rather Software of Unknown Pedigree!
