Submission Einstein on Security Procedures and Processes->

wiredmikey writes: An interesting column by Oliver Rochford on how in addition to being a renowned theoretical physicist, Albert Einstein was also quite a wizard at writing security procedures and processes, without even really knowing it.

In the column, using several quotes and examples from Einstein's work, Rochford argues how a Security Guru should be more than just a technician, and that his/her education must reach far beyond I.T. It is easy to forget that there is a reason for the procedures, policies and approaches that we use and advocate beyond having some in place.

The article highlights a selection of Einstein's wisdoms that may worthwhile when considering security. After all, who better to secure the Manhattan Project than a genius, right?
