Last month, I shared a Help Net Security article I wrote combining two things I love; Information Security (InfoSec) and The Walking Dead. If you haven’t read that yet, feel free to check it out. This month, I continue my pop culture series by mashing up InfoSec with another admired book and TV series; Game of Thrones.
The fictional world of Westeros is an unforgiving land, where inhabitants must quickly learn to defend themselves if they have any hope of survival. Unfortunately, the Internet also seems to be evolving into a fairly dangerous landscape, where just visiting the wrong web site might infect your computer. Is there anything a network security professional can learn from the medieval warriors of Westeros?
That’s exactly what my latest article explores. If you’re interested in the Six InfoSec Tips I Learned from Game of Thrones, check out my article below, and join me for A Song of Ice and Firewalls:
