Interesting news post about Mary Ann Davidsons comments on security education

First of all I must apologise for my lack of posts over the last couple of weeks. Things are very busy at the moment with work and I am having to spend all my time working to complete a piece of work for a client over the last couple of weeks and the next couple of weeks. Normal service on this blog will resume in a couple of weeks time.

I saw an interesting news post a few days ago titled - (broken link) Software firms fault colleges' security education where Robert Lemos talks about a two hour panel session at the Secure Software Forum where Mary Ann Davidson (Chief Security Officer of Oracle) was one of the panel members. The panel was trying to analyse where flawed software is still the norm in the industry. The discussion focused on the lack of good security training in colleges for students.

Quite an interesting read and worth taking a look.
