I write this article in one of those rare moments when I indulge in the belief that computer security is something that should be taken seriously. I do not want to disrespect the many professionals who try to work by seriously helping customers and employers to “keep the ship going”. Nor, however, can I pretend to ignore what the cybersecurity market was and has become. Without many hackers, there would not even be the slightest improvement in security caused by these stunts.
Crime’s apology? Incitement to commit a crime? No, merely stating an objective fact: in the field of computer security, it is not the fines that induce legal compliance.
