Security seriously discussed

Good series analyzing many of the risk management failures perpetrated in the Wikileaks affair. I don’t usually cite articles from unabashedly political blogs here, but this material is of such high quality that I’m going to make an exception for it.


I won’t add my own commentary here, instead I’ll just list the links to the parts of the series published so far and let the reader make up his/her own mind about how close the original author comes to hitting the mark. The analysis is quite thorough, with citations to specific policies and best practices violated — in essence setting forth a case study in management failure.
