Winter has finally arrived here on Cape Cod (although global warming has apparently altered the migratory patterns of the snow birds who should all be in Florida by now- but they are still here, driving very slowly along Route 6A, their little blue haired heads barely visible behind the wheel). But I digress.
As we were shoveling the driveway and deck, it occurred to me that snow removal is a lot like the tedious bits of InfoSec. It is always reactive, and we have to do it or things get worse- but we’re always in clean-up mode, never preventative mode (except possibly for the aforementioned global warming).
That’s it. I told you it was pointless.
