Who's Fault is Bad Computer Security

Scapegoating the wrong people rebuts Security czar points finger of blame, saying government crippled the internet and the computer security proponents. Some good points but something that needs to be mentioned is the addage that there is that "there is no thing as absolute security." Security is really about risk management, how much risk are you willing to expose given the security precautions you are willing to attempt. Back in the day government didn't trust the buisness or people so the risk wasn't the reward, better security. Now it is in vogue for government to say "we want better security" but the real risk is to allow buisnesses and people access to serious security, a risk that government isn't really willing to take. So like most all political posturing post 9/11 it is only meaningless measure.
