St. George’s day. Dragon Slayers r’US,
Whilst Hackers Live!
By Nicholas Ashton, CEO/CIO, CommSmart Global Group
Yes, Great Britain is celebrating St. George’s Day still!
St. George is the patron saint of England. His emblem, a red cross on a white background, is the flag of England, and part of the British flag. St George's emblem was adopted by Richard the Lion Heart and brought to England in the 12th century. The king's soldiers wore it on their tunics to avoid confusion in battle.
Hang on, are there not more important things to be protecting than slaying dragons? Of course there are! Most Brits have no earthly idea who George, is, expect and a young prince dragging his parents around Australasia, patting bunnies.
I bet most of them do not know that Shakespeare was born on 23 April 1564 and he died on the same day in 1616. Which was thoughtful of him!
It seems there are two corners that are playing opposite ends of the park, the IT what’ it’s, who do nothing than talk about it and then still do nothing. They did not create the solution, so they pick it apart, trying to come up with an excuse on why it will not work and how it should Beta tested until 2050.
In the other corner are the CEO’s and Board Members who are warned, ignore and have no earthly idea what these computer attacks are all about and look like three monkeys in suits.
Sorry, ignorance is not an excuse when you put mere mortals through hell and back, when their bank account is lifted, monies stolen, their personal information gone and being sold and used by computer terrorists.
This third group watches on, the public, that get affected the most, the General Public, us! We bear the brunt of inept management who pretend there are no computer issues and turn the other cheek. In fact, they are just showing their ass to what they think of us.
Stop Being REACTIVE!
Start Being PROACTIVE, NOW!
Look, St. George was but one man and he slayed dragons, collective, we can stop these low life hackers, phishers and man in the middle brutal attackers.
It is about responsibility from all.
