Michael Howard: Funny, Good Guy


Yesterday, Michael Howard (the security guy) presented to my team on a kind of “fact vs. fiction” about what security is, how well Microsoft does vs. the industry, and so on. I won’t get into details, but I walked away thinking a) Microsoft isn’t as bad in terms of security as most people probably think if these numbers are right and b) there are a couple of large competitors out there that are in for a rude awakening when people start to aggressively hack them.


I also was reminded that he’s a really funny guy. You should read his book.

    I do not think it is unresaonable to ask for you to exalobrate.

  2. I encourage you to look at the number of critical security patches released for Windows Server 2003 and Red Hat 9 and the average time to releasing a fix.
