Mike Weider, CTO of Watchfire, comments on VT paper

Mike Weider of Watchfire and I served on a panel discussion recently at the 5th Annual Cyber Security Executive Summit in NYC.

He was kind enough to review the VT paper. I thank him for his time.

Here are his comments:

I finally had a chance to review this. Good article. I agree with your thesis but fear that this will be a hard and slow transition for many in the security industry. Protecting the downside is more obvious then generating upside. Protecting downside is very similar from one company to another. The economic upside will vary more from business to business so it will require creative people to see these opportunities. Create entrepreneurship is not necessarily a current focus of many security professionals so this might be hard for them to execute on.
