Four Irrefutable Security Laws
This list is from Malcolm Harkins, Intel’s chief information security officer, and it’s a good one (from a talk at Forrester’s Security Forum):

- Code wants to be wrong.
- Services want to be on.
- Security features can be used to harm.
His dig at open source software is just plain dumb, though:
Harkins cited mobile apps: “What kind of security do we think is in something that sells for 99 cents? Not much.”
