The folks at Gartner recently published a research note authored by Andrew Lerner and Jeremy D’Hoinne that highlights their dirty dozen worst network security practices for 2015. This is based on their interviews with over 3000 customers. I would give you the link to the report but it is not publicly available. However if you are a Gartner customer (and most of you probably are for good or bad) you can grab a copy of the report.
I have prepared by “Shimmy view” of these worst practices. I think many of them are right on. Have a look at the slides and let me know what do you think. Did they leave any out or put ones in that don’t belong there? One mans security worst practices is another’s best.[seoslides embed_id=”194407f17459″ script_src=”https://devops.com/embed-script/gartners-netsec-dirty-dozen-worst-practices/gartners-dirty-dozen/” overview_src=”https://devops.com/slides/gartners-netsec-dirty-dozen-worst-practices/” site_src=”https://devops.com” site_title=”DevOps.com” title=”Gartner’s NetSec Dirty Dozen Worst Practices” /]
