Pointless observation on snow removal and InfoSec

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.
